We’re mingling with royals this week with the younger relative of the Matarromera Reserva the King of Spain likes to order. Even though it’s younger than its illustrious older brother, there’s nothing humble about it.

The colour is rich, dark and blueish

The complex nose promises all kinds of stuff like cherries, wood, vanilla

The palate has acidity, tannins that underline the wood; licorice; blueberries and cocoa

Elegant, full wine with intensity

Pairing: toast lamb with herbs, game dishes, stews
