"(all garnacha, aged in small French oak barrels, 25% of them new): Bright ruby. Sexy black raspberry and floral pastille aromas and flavors display a suave blend of richness and energy. Round and fleshy, with sweet red berry preserve flavors, silky tannins and lively mineral lift. Leaves exotic floral and spice notes behind on the strikingly pure, sappy finish."
