Tasting - René Barbier Cabernet Sauvignon Cosecha 1996

I must confess it was a nice surprise because I wasn´t expecting that much from this wine…
With almost 12 years of age, this Spanish Cabernet Sauvignon produced by René Barbier, presented a almost brown colour, oxidated and clean.
On the beginning it was closed on the nose but after a few minutes it lost all the shyness and showed the fruit, very matured with also some spicy notes.
Once on the mouth, it was balanced and round showing elegancy and also fine tanins but maybe lacking a longer end.
Even so, a very nice wine, elegant and smooth, making a nice final set. 83 pts
