Nose: The wood is perfectly integrated, fine and fresh spices. The fruit reminds ripe cherries. Light mineral notes appear in the background, which give depth to the wine. A final freshness reminds the greatness of the 2010 vintage.
Palate: Voluminous and pleasant wine, with very elaborated and integrated tannins. The fruit feeling of the ripe cherry becomes more complex and reminds the taste of the flesh next to the stone. It can be appreciated a fresh minerality which leads to the remembrance of an excellent vintage with Atlantic reminiscences. Very long, complex, tasty and elegant wine.
