Tasting Notes

The nose immediately strikes with beautiful perfumed violets. Rich notes of ripe plum fruit complements this aromatic profile. The palate is full bodied but not over bearing, instead there are soft, gentle tannins that carry the structure superbly. A wonderfully complex herbaceous profile is revealed and dominated by fennel and lavender. The rich purple fruit contains echoes of port and matches perfectly with the elegant herbs to combine for a truly mouth filling but graceful palate. Effortlessly long on the finish with the obvious touch of a world class winemaker. Exacting detail from the vineyard to the finish signifies that this is a special wine from an equally special location.

TASTING NOTES

A vivid mid-ruby, dried rose petal and balsamic scented reserva, still showing vibrant raspberry fruit and fresh acid. Chocolate-coated cherry character with hints of vanilla, but in a far more restrained way than in classic Rioja wines. Superb structure with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a tar-like grip towards the end of the long finish. Armit Wines
