Wine Tasting Notes
The El Diablo's vibrant aromatics exhibit strawberry jam, red vines, blueberry, crushed white stones, white pepper, black licorice, dried thyme, and blood orange. The silky palate is layered with red and blue fruit, garrigue, tangerine oil, and a hint of white tobacco on the long finish. This wine is readily accessible now, and will age effortlessly for 10-15 years or more.
