Tasting Notes Señorio de Cuzcurrita

Nice cherry red color, with an intense and complex nose with notes of black fruits such as ripe black plum, blueberries, currants and some balsamic and spicy notes, such as cedar and licorice. Unctuous in the mouth with soft and enveloping tannins, balanced, complex, elegant and with a long and pleasant finish. Great aromatic persistence.
