The red wine Otazu Premium Cuvée has a very bright cherry colour with some ruby glints.
This red wine from Navarra by Señorío de Otazu suggests aromas of black fruit, vanilla, spices, toast, balsam, aromatic herbs and some earthy remembrances.
Bold and intense, this blend of Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon has a very good acidity and a solid backbone. Ripe fruit, subtle toasted nuances, and remembrances of spices, balsam and underbush. Mild tannins and long finish.
