De Lucca Rio Colorado Reserva 2006

Member Review by fiona1605:

A superb blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat and Merlot. 18 months in French and American oak . Intense ruby colour, with dark violet reflections. Complex aroma of blackberries, black cherry, fresh tobacco and spices, on vanilla oak. On the palate presents mature soft tannins, beautifully balanced, good acidity with a long finish.
