Colour: Intense high layer with cherry background.
Nose: Very intense and deep, with very well integrated and high-quality oak. Black fruits appear. Ripe and fresh plum predominates. Chocolate notes and tobacco leafs memories. It has a mineral character that highlights the smell of the earth, mixed with aromas of aromatic plants.
Palate: It is voluminous and full, with very fine and noble tannins. The fruity sensation is marked by the memory of well-ripened black fruits and plum above all. Very wide in the mouth and long at the same time, wrapped in a great balance. Friendly and tasty, with a lot of flavour, complex, elegant and long.
Autumn and Winter with lot of rain so the cycle began with enough water on the ground. Very cold winter.
Spring fresh at its start but it changed in May, which was really warm and made the phenology process progress (flowering 1st June).
During May it did not rain at all, due to the winter reserves of water, it did not matter. It rained in June after the curd. July was extremely hot with highs of 35ºC-37ºC and storms that left good rainfall.
Soft August, with cooler temperatures than usual. Very early harvest, mid-September, finishing the 8th October.
A year of perfect maturation, with Mediterranean influence and great wines.
