Reviews of Jean Leon Vinya Le Havre Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2012
- On the nose the harmony of its aromas, mature red fruit, currants, and plums stands out over a background of spices and toasted notes resulting from its ageing in barrel.
- It has a voluptuous entry into the mouth and an excellent structure. It is characterised by its great elegance.
- Ideal to accompany red meats, such as griddled beef entrecote.
- Limited stock, 2007 vintage coming soon.
Mixture of red and brown colour. On the nose, red fruit and green pepper. The barrel leaves good flavours.
To this red would have paired better with a softer meat.
Highly recommended, especially for its excellent value for money.
