Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 17 Sarah Jane Evans MW 18.5 Mike Ritchie MW 17
Fine blend of floral and fruit aromatics, with a note of mint and garrigue. The oak is well integrated, enhancing the overall fruit expression. Nice balance on the palate and a long, complex finish.
