Bodegas Faustino I Gran Reserva

Wine Description

(From 2001 Vintage) Aromas of dried cherry and rose petals, flavors of dark berries and tobacco, ripe tannins and a long, inviting finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) The nose is of mushrooms, old barrels, and dried and concentrated fruits-- the smells that only time in a cellar can provide. The mouth is far more fruity, showing red and bing cherries and cranberries, but the character of barrel aging that defines Gran Reserva remains, alongside herbal notes of green tobacco, herbs, and cardamom.
