Additional Information
Additional Information
Appearance

High cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

Liquorice, red and black fruit, some vegetal notions, mineral undertones, a dash of cedar, leather and coffee, some balsamic notes and remembrances of undergrowth and dry earth.

Palate

Powerful and a still untamed, with plenty of room for growth. The wine, though, already gives hints of its future greatness. Rock-solid structure, very good acidity and a complex combination of liquorice, flowers, earth, mineral, spices and toast. Extremely long, compressed finish. 

Our personal opinion

Leda Viñas Viejas 2012 is quite a mighty wine. Extremely enjoyable.
