Tasting Notes Viña de Los Pinos 2018
Cherry red coloured, deep and shining, this wine shows red fruits and roses on the nose. On the palate it shows lively acidity and soft tannins that play with flavours of red berries and forest leading to a round and long finish where it shows minerality and earthiness like the clay its vines are planted on. It is a serious an elegant wine that ought to be shared. We sincerely recommend to have another bottle at reach, one is not usually enough.
