Raul Perez La Vizcaina El Rapolao Bierzo 2019
Aromas of red fruits with hints of flowers lead to an expressive palate of raspberry and exotic spices with subtle notes of smoke. This wine is fresh and elegant.
Deep garnet. Deep-pitched cherry and cassis aromas are complemented by suggestions of smoky minerals, baking spices and lavender, along with a licorice note that builds with air. Youthfully chewy and alluringly sweet, offering concentrated, spice-laced black raspberry, bitter cherry, boysenberry and succulent herb flavors sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity. Finishes sweet, smoky and extremely long, showing solid grip and mounting tannins that add framework to the intense dark fruit.
