Even after all these years, the grape variety Cabernet Sauvignon Dominio de Valdepusa by Marques de Grinon impresses with its great expressiveness.
The glass is filled with an intense ruby red color. This spicy red wine delights with an aromatic bouquet of currants and blackberries. On the palate, this Spanish red wine is very elegant, the tannins are beautifully integrated. The multi-layered body harmonizes wonderfully with the concentrated, dense texture. The finale is long lasting and wonderfully present.
