Reviews of Protos Crianza Magnum 2009
The colour was rather dark red. Great aromas of coffee and wood. Distinctive oxidation notes on the palate.
Unfortunately, it did not match with food, although the wine was really ok.
Red colour and violet edges. This Bodegas Protos smells like violets. Strong flavour which reminds me of strawberry candy.
Perfect for starters and appetizers.
