Wine Description

The 2006 Reserva is aged for 18 months in oak casks. It has an elevated licorice and mint bouquet with just a touch of volatility, although it is nothing to get worried about. The palate is well-balanced with leathery dark berry fruit, white pepper and a "correct" classic dry finish that is long and satisfying. This is honest and well-crafted.
