Bodegas Chivite Coleccion 125 Reserva Red
This is one of the top wines from Bodegas chivite, and it's quite surprising how Bordeaux-ish this looks now it has a touch of age. Aromas of plums, dark cherries, tobacco leaf and star anise spice adorn the nose and tempt the senses, then the more medium-bodied palate chimes in with dark fruit flavours, licks of earth and leather couches, a touch of smokiness, fine tannins, and a long cherry and savoury finish. This one isn't done yet!
Nose: Subtle and complex. Predominantly black fruits –black plum, bilberry jam- over spices of fine oak, Havana cigar, cedar.
Palate: Powerful attack. Well-balanced, structured and full-bodied evolution. Very persistent. Aftertaste of spices, clove, morello cherry.
71% Tempranillo, 17% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon
