Clean and briliant coloring with deep cherry red hues and a russet rim. The bouquet is filled with notes of spice, vanilla, and black fruits, rounded by an elegant touch oak. On the palate there is good structure and elegant tannins with spice and ageing notes. Enjoy the long finish and pleasant aftertaste of this wine.
An ideal companion for grilled or barbecued red meat and all types of stew, including spicy dishes. A powerful wine, it also enhances the flavor of fish such as tuna, salmon or cod.
This is a step up (of course) from the red label, which is good too. The reserve has no after taste, it's smooth from start to finish. I enjoy this brand, and when there is a good group of friends around, the reserve is always on the table.
a thoroughly enjoyable vintage, especially the long finish. Best served slightly chilled - approximately 58 degrees. Thi wine must breathe first - decant and let stand 30-35 minutes to allow it to open.
Lacking in fruit and spunk. A bit over the hill.
