Tasting notes

For many this is the best Cabernet in Spain. Our veteran is a wine as elegant as it is complex. Its more than 25-year- experienced vines together with a late harvest after a perfect ripening give shape to a wine rich in balsamic notes, spices and minerals. Its singular spirit originates in a slow and meticulous production process: long macerations, 15-month aging in French oak barrels and fermentation in wooden vats. Also, it rests in the bottle, aging for a long time before going on the market. For its tasting, it is recommended to serve it between 15º and 17ºC and wait calmly for it to speak out. We will find it smooth but powerful on the palate, always leaving a long finish.
