Degustation notes

Deep, dark cherry red – almost black – with spicy barrique flavours of vanilla, caramel, coconut and cinnamon, the ripe-berry fruitaromas take a back seat. Reveals an attractive concentration on the palate, displaying plenty of finesse despite the high tannin content. Is multilayered and complex with good body and fine spiciness. Refreshing tartness gives elegance, in a long, aromatic finish.

    Den Conde habe zum ersten Mal probiert und war beim ersten Schluck enttäuscht.
    Aber je länger die Flaschen offen war, desto mehr kam er..
    Fazit: Lange vor dem Genuss öffnen.

    Wer gerne einen etwas fülligen, aromatischen Wein hat, der zu vielen verschiedenen Speisen passt, ist mit dem San Cristobal perfekt bedient.

    le prix est attrayant mais la qualité ne correspond pas a votre
    définition... trop jeune
