Less concentrated and oaky than its big brother, Numanthia, but definitely more approachable, and arguably more likable. Some earth and leather deepen and darken the nose, while in the mouth, chunky black fruit kicks up notes of cola and chocolate. Very smooth and sweet, with firm tannins but not the jack-hammer type.
