Degustation notes

Powerful purple colour, a rich bouquet with delicate aromas of black berries (blackberries and cassis) and discreet spicy lie notes, undertones of vanilla and tobacco, an elegant palate, very nice harmony of delicately roasted flavours and hints of chocolate, a pleasant fruity sweetness, very flattering, makes this an ample wine, supple and warm, good sandy tannins accompany the long finish.

    herausragender Wein(jg 2011) - Schön ausbalancierte Aromen, die Handschrift französischer Weinkunst ist deutlich zu spüren.. nicht zu verwechseln mit dem "normalen" Cabernet Sauvignon von Los Vascos, welcher meiner Meinung nach nicht annähernd an diesen feinen Tropfen herankommt. Den Grande Reserve 2011, darf man getrost auch Kennern servieren, diese werden positiv überrascht sein.
