Winemaker's Notes

The cherry red is no more intense than in the Crianza but the violet edge disappears. Its aroma is more complex, the fruity character becomes subsidiary and its ageing in the bottle comes to the surface with its reminiscences of tobacco and vanilla.

The taste includes tannins that have softened in the bottle and the sharper imprint of newer wood that has been overshadowed over by the influence of the more worn wood. The wine has been under the combined influence of the two kinds of wood for about 18 months. A very elegant and supple wine.
