Baron de Magana 2003

  • Area: Spain, Navarra
  • Grape: 70% Merlot, 20% Cab sauv, 10% Tempranillo
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black 87, Dilettante 87, Nwjr 87
Description: Aromas of flowers, cherry, smokey oak and ripe fruit waft out of the glass. Almost liquor like in the mouth, the sweet attack immediately followed by a soft dryness with flavors of flowers, fruit and coffee beans. It finishes up with soft and lightly sweet tannins. Food brings out a richness that isn't there alone. Decant 30 minutes.
