The Story

Its name was given for the 2003 vintage; before then, this wine had no specific name, it was simply our “generic” wine.

Written Notes

Good looking normal size bottle and in an perfect condition. Colour is purple and deep. On the nose it is youthful. The taste is fruity, fresh, and dry, warming, with medium tannin, and average in acidity, medium-bodied and developing. On the palate it is layered and has vegetal, mineral, floral and blackberry flavours. The finish is medium long and spicy. This wine is fine. I paid around 30-50€ a bottle. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 5-10€ years and decant at least 30min before tasting. Good value for money.
