【 Johnnie To's Edition - Marqués de Tomares Crianza 2014 】
Aged 12 months in American-French Oak Barrels and 12 months in bottle. Marqués de Tomares Crianza is an enjoyable wine that exhibits shiny ruby red in color with thick tears. It is packed with well-assembled red and black fruits characters, spicy tones and balsamic notes. This is a great varietal expression with a mature touch of toasted wood. Medium-bodied, the taste is soft and round on entry with velvety and pleasant sensations. Its tannic structure is elegant and well established. Its aftertaste is long, assertive, and sticking by its persistence.
