A rich and structured wine that is still so easy to drink. Spicy, complex and deep
An expressive combination of base wines from younger vines of the Comte de Thun Crus. "La Parrazal" reflects the characteristic features of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet franc and Syrah as well as the unique terroir of the Plateau Cordais.
It's aromas are uniquely Syrah with red fruits, cassis and spice, but on the palate the there is an abundance of preserved dark fruits and a little black olives with earthy notes, as well as bacon, tobacco and pepper.
The wine is ripe, juicy and somewhat warm with polished, chocolatey tannins and delicately peppery notes with a touch of saltiness in the background.
The 2012 is still rather young but has a very good finish
