Big & Bold
This is an excellent wine now (if you give it about an hour to breathe first) and should hold and develop well for perhaps the next ten years. Dry, dusty, fruity, with a smooth lingering finish. Not a fruit bomb, but a solid Cabernet. Highly recommend. Was excellent with a medium rare beef tenderloin.
Lingering and tingling tastes of citrus and honey envelope the palate. The viscosity is the perfect blend of feel and taste combined to make each sip a sensual experience. Any more flavor would be gilding the lily, any less and it's perfection would be lost. This is truly a dessert wine to be savored on it's own merit, not as a mere accompaniment to a sweet dish.
Very much like the Cristalino Brut Cava, a touch sweeter and fruiter nose. Festive looking and price lends it to everyday entertaing.
Light, crisp, fresh, rather a short finish. However at the price it is an excellent value for an everyday bubbley.
An excellent choice as an aperitif or for the "Elevens" AM or PM. Served chilled and enjoy. May also accompany Tapas.
