Flamboyant, fragrant, youthful.
The entire Escorihuela 1884 series has seen a facelift, the new label is more elegant, but not a huge departure from previous vintages.
The Cabernet is always a standout and the flamboyant 2019 delivers lifted purple berries, cassis and warm vanilla aromas layered with pipe tobacco, baking spice, graphite and saddle leather. Fresh red fruit, cocoa and savoury herbs are suggested in the mouth; smooth overall, but there are some youthful tannins on the finish that should soften.
A solid partner for game meats, roasted wild mushrooms, aged cheeses and BBQ.
