But ever stronger notes of fermented Danish Stevenbær cherries push their way into the nose, so a mixture of dark juiciness, acidity, chocolate, marzipan and balsamic notes. Besides the tannin, it is notes of crushed stone that provide grip, but also a little coolness in this warm, juicy and flattering wine.

Wine information

A cuvée of 90 % Graciano and 10 % Tempranillo from high altitude vineyards, spontaneously fermented in large wood and aged in French and Navarrese oak for 24 months. This is the first vintage of winemaker Jean-François Hébrard , who now replaces Olivier Rivière.

Color

deep purple

Nose

Dark and mysterious presents itself the Usuaran 2015 in the nose. At first, elegant, lightly toasted wood dominates the aroma. However, notes of fermented, Danish Stevenbær cherries push themselves more and more strongly into the nose, thus a mixture of dark juiciness, acidity, chocolate, marzipan and balsamic notes. There are also hints of violets and black olive tapenade, blackberries and dark earth.

Mouth

On the palate, the Graciano is darkly fruity and deep with a tannic framework that just makes you chew the wine. The texture is grainy while evoking the drying that dark chocolate offers. Along with the tannin, there are notes of crushed stone that provide grip, but also a bit of coolness in this warm, juicy and flattering wine.
