Garzón, Balasto 2018

RRP £79.95

Gamey fruitiness and untoasted barrel notes on the nose, with intense but not jammy fruitiness – cassis and blueberries – with a savoury note of green stems and a creamy chocolate finish. The balancing on the palate of fruit and savoury elements joined by the creaminess in the finish is one of opposites blending to make a more intriguing taste. Structurally, it is polished, with smooth tannins and no rough edges.
