Ventus 2015

My second red wine from the Teruel region. This time from a Bodega just outside of Valderrobres. Made from a blend of six grapes and aged in French oak for 3 years.

It has a light ruby red colour and a medium intense scent. It smells of red berries with a hint of dark chocolate.

Unfortunately I don’t get the chocolate in the flavour. The berries yes and some bitter. This has acidity and tannins better balanced than before, they haven’t stripped my mouth dry, but still noticeable. A smoother wine than the last one that fills the mouth more but not quite there yet for me.

Again this is eminently drinkable with some interesting flavours. I’d drink it again if served but won’t be buying a bottle.
