Álvaro Palacios - Les Aubaguetes 2016

Linear plum and dark cherry notes, powdery cocoa, orange peel and blossom, raspberry
at the base along with minor vanilla and dark spice touches. Delicate on the palate, light
touches of dark fruit, good wealth of tannins yet held in check, medium plus acidity, very
long finish. Needs much more time in the bottle but is developing wonderfully.
