Loxarel Penedès Ops 2006
Sight: Cherry with violaceous reflections. Nose: Vegetal notes appear in the first place and they remind us of green pepper; later on we find fruit aromas (red berries). The vanilla sweetness appears with elegance. Mouth: This wine is the result of the combination of the Cabernet and Merlot's fruit with the toasted and vanilla of the partial ageing of the Tempranillo. The result is a wine with a more modern style and easy to drink. The acidity is well compensated by the alcohol; the tannin is silky but firm, rounding the combination perfectly. Its aftertaste is long and spicy (vanilla, cinnamon). Ideal to go with roasted and stewed meat, and cured and creamy cheese. It combines very well with Mediterranean dishes.
