Very good aromas of vanilla. Flavours are well balanced.
In this Dalmau 2015, the wood dominates the wine flavours.

Red intense cherry colour and high layer. It has aromas that reminded me of white roses.Quite light, but was ok for my taste.
Good wine, but I would not have taken it with fish.
My best friend from Rioja recommended it to me.
