Yllera Pepe 2014
Tribute to one of our founders, "Pepe Yllera". Semi-aging (6 months in barrel). It comes with personality and sophistication. Never disappoints.

Aroma: It has red cherry with cardinal notes. It has a powerful nose with aromas of red and black fruits along with spicy notes (vanilla, licorice) and balsamic (eucalyptus) contributed by the oak.
