4 /5

Great color intensity with a higher even than in previous vintages concentration. Saturated dark cherry. Complex and attractive nose, with lots of floral aromas primarily of red fruits, well assembled with wood and brings fresh notes of eucalyptus and later roasting and candy. It has a soft and gentle entry in mouth leads to a wine of great aromatic richness and incredible expressiveness. Good balance between alcohol, acidity and tannin structure with very high quality fine and smooth. Very persistent.
