Opaque purple in appearance. Explosive aromas of black and blue fruits are transformed into notes of liquorice, Indian spices and flower oils. Rich and long, it has a good acidity that lends elegance. In the mouth, sweet blueberries and redcurrants mark the palate with persistence in a spicy, concentrated finish.
The profile of the 2017 Triga is similar to that of its siblings—notes of barbecued meat, fried corn, very ripe and jammy fruit and a lush, decadent mouthfeel with notes of wood and cola nut. It's 16.2% alcohol and is a stereotype of the style. It finishes tannic and astringent. For fans of super ripe, concentrated and oaky reds. It's 85% Monastrell and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, but with the style it has, that's almost irrelevant.
