Vinya Le Havre Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva by Jean Leon comes from the Spanish DO Penedès region. This red wine cuvée is vinified from Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%).
In the glass, this red wine shimmers in a strong cherry red with chimney red highlights. The aromatic bouquet is dominated by dark fruits. Aromas of ripe blackberries and juicy plums unfold with subtle notes of vanilla and roasted notes. On the palate, this Spanish cuvée convinces with a full-bodied body with a very good and aromatic fruit fullness. The fine, present tannins combine with spicy nuances of liquorice and clove. The delicious finale comes with a wonderful, pleasant length.
