Other Cava values under $25. Recommended and tasted, but no tasting note given.
A vinous version, showing an array of ground spices, with well-meshed flavors of sun-dried cherry, macerated plum, toasted almond and subtle balsamico. Lively, with a creamy bead. Drink now. 150,000 cases made.
The dark and rusty color is almost red. Aromas of roasted red fruits, tire rubber and baked beans precede a foamy palate with no smoothness. Cherry-skin flavors finish rough then hollow.
