Palacios Remondo Rioja la Vendimia

    딸기향과 코를 싸하게 자극하는 허브 불에그을린오크 그리고 연유향 처음엔 탄닌(떫은맛) 강하고 산미 느껴지나 시간이지나면 나무태운 느낌이 더해져 강한 키피향

    (2015 Vintage) This red shows good density, with black cherry, plum, espresso and black olive flavors mingling over firm tannins and balsamic acidity. Stays balanced and focused through the smoky finish. Drink now through 2027. 3,552 cases imported.–TM
