The red wine Augustus Reserva Trajanus is deep ruby with some reddish tinges.
Rather complex and nuanced, this blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Grenache and Merlot suggests some smokey and toasted notions, a dash of black fruit and a bouquet of flowers, giving way to aromas of spices, toffee and vanilla. In the background, some earthy and mineral remembrances and aromas of aromatic herbs and Havanna cigars.
Complex, full-bodied and intense, the texture of this wine from Cellers Avgvstvs Forvm is smooth, and acidity is excellent. Tannins are ripe, and finish is very long, with remembrances of spices, fruit and some smokey and mineral notes.
