Faustino Gran Reserva 1994
Clean, bright, medium deep. Maroon developing to brick red. Deep and complex nose. Balance between cedar and sweet spices hints such as cinammon. Deep, sweet dark-cherry fruit forms a solid foundation for this impressive wine. There's a touch of menthol oak on the nose; plenty of leather and earth accents in the mouth, coupled with good acidity, keep the palate complex and lively. Finishes long, with full but-not harsh-tannins. Light and silky, soft tannin integrated with the acidity. Aftertaste: Remarkable sweet. Finish: Long and complex.
It matches with any kind of meat and mushrooms rice. Some tasty or oily fish such as tuna or cod. Medium-aged cheese such as emmental or gruyere.
