On the nose notes of brown sugar, apricot, spice, cinnamon, nutmeg. Very fresh and vibrant. Palate, dry, med+ acid, long finish. dried fruits, apricot, cinnamon, orange, orange peel, candied fruits, nut, roasted nut, almond, walnut.
Its amber color shows that It´s dense and full-bodied. This is clean as well.
On the nose it has a médium-high intensity, and it´s complex. old wood, dry fruits, caramel, roasted aromas and hints of sweet and saline aromas. It seems like fino, amontillado and oloroso at the same time.
On the palate the flavors are the same; at the beginning it´s a little bit sweet, and then it shows almonds and saline aromas, which are present in a long final, which is a little bit bitter.

Just returning home after my Camino de Santiago, almost 1.000 kilometres, connecting Roncesvalles and Santiago, crossing some of our most amazing wine regions (Navarra, Rioja, Bierzo, Valdeorras, Ribeiro and Rias Baixas). Matching some gazpacho snaps and gordal olives. This is a fantastic PC VOS, still pungent and savory. Definitively this is a very fine wine.

Maridando algunos chupitos de gazpacho y aceitunas gordal. Es un PC VOS fantástico, aún pungente y sabroso. Definitivamente esun vino muy bueno.
