Descendientes de J. Palacios Petalos del Bierzo 2012
|Brand||Descendientes de J. Palacios|
International Wine CellarBright violet color. High-pitched red and dark berry scents are accented by hints of fresh flowers, minerals and peppery spices. Lithe, sharply focused black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter with air while retaining very good clarity. Fine-grained tannins creep in slowly on the finish, which shows excellent thrust and spicy persistence.
Wine EnthusiastBold, floral aromas of rubbery red-berry fruits introduce a full, fresh, largely elegant palate that's home to minerally, medicinal cherry, plum and berry flavors. Wood grain and resiny notes are apparent on the finish, which is long, driving, spicy and oaky.
Wine SpectatorPlump yet polished, this red offers flavors of plum, espresso, mineral and fresh herbs, supported by gentle tannins and fresh acidity. Subtle, harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2018.
