La Linda · Old Vines
A deep purple-red wine of intense aromas reminiscent of plum and fresh spices, typical of this grape variety. It is straight-forward and expressive in the palate, with a ripe fruit and pleasant smoked aftertaste due to its ageing in oak barrels. It is a juicy wine, with incipient tannins and a balanced finish, characteristic of old vines.
