Tasting Notes Castillo de Mendoza Ecological author

In view Cherry red color with violet edges.

Smell: Very intense aroma of black fruits - blackberries, blueberries, plums - and fine notes of pastries and cocoa, very spicy, certain memories of undergrowth herbs such as rosemary and lavender.

Taste: The palate is enveloping, with great body and structure, very complex, certain sensations of ripe fruit and mineral touches give it a long and persistent finish.
