Nose

This organic red wine by Masia Can Mayol suggests some intense, pure aromas of black and redcurrants, alongside aromas of withered vegetables, aromatic herbs, chocolate, leather and coffee.

A peculiar wine. A naked, rustic Bordeaux blend. Refreshingly funky. Review by Bordeaux (Posted on 15/11/2017)
