Los Condes Gran Reserva is a red blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Catalunya (Spain) by the Bodegas 1898 winery, a brand owned by the Ramon Roqueta winery. Raised in barrels for 24 months, the 2013 purple vintage offer a charming nose with aromas of cherries and red flowers. It has an elegant mouth, almost velvety initially, that starts with cherries and berries to finish with small sensations of woods. Medium finish for this good wine that lacks just a little bit of complexity in the mouth to be a great one.
