Aromas a fruta bem madura. Travo a dar para o salgado no final.
Um pouco mais fraco do que as colheitas anteriores, mas continua a ser um grande vinho.

We drank this wine with friends.
Attractive and intense colour. It uncurtains a scent of red and yellow roses. I couldn't find any particular flavour.
It was a perfect companion for the main course.

4/5

It's hard to be found in stores, so buy it online.
A Garnacha with a nice colour. Smelled soft, like cinnamon and vanilla . I noticed The 2001 a little astringent.
