From the Almansa region in Spain comes this deep red brushed with purple, medium bodied wine with well structured tannins and an alcohol content of 14% giving it structure and balanced heat. A peppery and cherry cola nose enveloped with smoke, spice box and wild blueberries create Este's inviting bouquet. The palate too senses the black pepper, berries and the smoky oak. It's a temptress of a wine yet somehow not overbearing.
