Wine Details



Wine Description

"The 1994 Gran Reserva 890, from an excellent vintage, exhibits a dark ruby/brick color. Its complex perfume is composed of nuances of scorched earth, cedar, mineral, red currants and cherry. On the palate, additional notes of toast, fungi, and floral scents emerge. This elegant wine has sufficient depth, concentration and weight ...92." WA 2/07.

    Deep red. Dried strawberry and cherry on the nose, with suave oak spices, mocha, lavender, rose and cured meat aromas, plus an exotic hint of incense. Round and plush, with an insinuating sweetness to the red fruit flavors and gentle lift on the back end. The expanding fruit flavors are joined by exotic flowers, smoke and spices on the finish. This should hold nicely, but why wait?
