This has an intense and deep cherry color that makes the drinker predisposed to enjoy the wealth of wild strawberry, blackberry and sweet spicy aromas that ensue. On the palate the balance between its oak and ripe fruit concentrate the senses on wild berries and suggestions of liquorice, leather, cinnamon and clove.
"The 2006 Venta Mazzaron is 100% Tempranillo aged in oak for nine months. Deep crimson-colored, it offers up a smoky perfume of mineral, licorice, espresso, and blackberry. This leads to a firm, structured wine with plenty of succulent fruit, spice notes, excellent balance, and a pure finish. Although it will improve in the bottle for 1-2 years, it can be enjoyed now."
