El Tresillo 1874

Apologies if these posts are repetitive but this wine is like the proverbial pig with a wooden leg – too good to consume all at once.

First the lovely red colour – almost pink – is really appetising. Then the massive multifaceted nose: to me it is black treacle on caramel, just a hint of spices and cooked citrus. In terms of mouthfeel it is zingy – definite acid and volatility – but the flavours are again super rich – black treacle with maybe just a bit of chocolate and a definite bitter citrus edge. It is of course immensely long.

Absolutely superb (again).
