Light, bright, red cherry and fresh unsweetened fruit palate. A refreshing aperitif with a slight chill.

This could be really good if it weren't for the oak. So much that it seemed like a possibly flawed bottle, what with abounding aromas and flavours of cork and new wood, and mustiness. There's real Garnacha freshness here, though, with blackberry, raspberry, and cherry riding a wave of tangy acidity, rich but cleansing, backed by light vanilla and vague herbal and spicy notes. But the woody oak is just too much, all in all, and by the second day the fruit thins out, leaving a bit more pepper on the palate, the flavours shorten, and a certain funkiness takes over both the aroma and the finish.
