I enjoyed this wine, the last sip being better than the first.
This wine was purchased in 2011 and was in my collection for about a year before I decided to let it breathe. I took a risk by waiting that long, being that it is not a reserva or gran reserva the wait was well worth it. When the wine hit the air, it immediately permeated the room with the sweet aromas of berries and cherries, we could not wait to sample it. The initial taste was a bit bitter, perhaps I waited too long but as we continue sampling this exquisite red, we found that flavor that we were waiting for.
