Editorial Reviews for Luigi Bosca Tempranillo Finca la Linda
Appearing quite dense but youthful with an edge of development. Heavy aromatics, dark and honeyed, with sweet black fruit and gentle spice notes. A bit dull in the mouth with a refreshing herbal character but a hot and hollow mid-palate. The finish is fairly long with oak driven notes of caramel and toffee. 82pts
