“This is quite fresh and accessible, with nicely integrated oak, drinkable now. It has a mixture of red and black fruit, with lactic hints and a spicy touch. The palate, as it happens with all the wines here, feels fresher and better balanced than what the nose might point to, but as the nose will change more with time in bottle, the sensation in the palate is more important. This has to be one of the most elegant wines I’ve tasted from Campo de Borja.”
