Nose: As always, the RODA I are discreet when you bring them close to the nose and little by little the aromas rise from the bottom, dragging wonderful sensations that fill the glass. There are many black fruits, but it has red flashes that make it shine, black plums dominate and cherries appear next to it. Below are the earth, chocolate, aromatic plants and sweet spices, cinnamon, cloves, which complete this aromatic landscape. The wood slightly leaves its mark on the background.
Mouth: It is an example of the elegance of RODA I, very fine in the mouth, with excellent tannin, silky and lively at the same time. Plums and cherries fill the mouth, slightly liquorous and fresh, it is a perfect and difficult balance. It is very long, with a powerful retronasal pathway. The excellent quality of the aged wood appears subtly and the cocoa and sweet spices finish off a sensation of enormous pleasure. It grows in the crown as is normal for RODA I. A great wine to drink now, which will improve a lot over the years.
