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.

    Klassische Assemblage - Natürlich ist Tempranillo im Ribera del Duero heimisch. Hier gedeiht sie wie nirgends sonst zu atemberaubenden Qualitäten heran. Der Conde de San Cristóbal vermählt diese Qualität mit den grossartigen Partnern Cabernet Sauvignon und Merlot. So entsteht ein Cru der Extraklasse.
