Cheval des Andes Red 2012

SKU 7790975018492


Red ruby color with violet highlights. The nose is complex and elegant. It shows notes of tobacco and white pepper followed by some notes of ripe yellow fruits such as apricot, peach, black fig and quince jam. On the palate, the first impression is driven by mentholated hints. A very balanced character between acidity and the dense silkiness of the tannins impacts on the elegant finish of this Grand Cru.

Toasty, blackened berry and cassis flavors finish with woody spice, length and complexity. Drink now through 2021.
