Tasting Notes Prado Enea
In nose it is delicate and fresh, in first impression it reminds us of red fruits (type blackberry), notes of spices type cinnamon and toasted touch of upbringing reminding us of cedar, shades of vanilla in branch and leaves of autumn. After 16 months in American oak deposits and 36 months in mainly French oak barrels, we appreciate a very well worked and integrated wood. in mouth it is fresh, long, with a very integrated acidity; the tannin begins to polish and makes it delicious and elegant. It is a wine that can be paired with stews, meats and even enjoyed as a glass.
