A blend of 60% Malbec and 20% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, respectively, the 2016 Vinyes Ocults Red Blend offers up aromatics of floral infused darker red fruits along with some graphite and a light shade of herbs and spices. Displaying good depth and complexity on its medium fuller palate, vibrant acidity enhances the fruit’s sweetness with ripe and nicely integrated tannins bringing this to a lingering conclusion. Drinking nicely as we speak this should show well over the next 2-3 years.
Diverse, complex and evolving aromas. Mint, cinnamon, paprika, red pepper, beet, caramel, toast, coffee, plums, and fresh flowers are detected. Its entry into the mouth is soft with a sensation of sweetness, and becomes enhanced with vibrant acidity and well-ripened tannins. Its end is long and refreshing.
