“I decided not to pair it with any dish. We drank a pair of bottles of Hécula 2017 with my friend.
Deep colour at first sight. Scents of raspberry. Do not know what had to taste like, but it was tasty.”
“Elegant wine with brilliant ruby red color. Powerful and koerperreich, well structured. The fruit of the complex berry flavors and tannins-present of new wood very well together. The medium length finish is elegant, soft and sustainable. Goes well with: venison and lamb.”
