Dominio de Eguren Codice 2018
Vivid ruby. Ripe red and blue fruits and a suggestion of pungent flowers on the highly perfumed nose. Silky, seamless and focused on the palate, showing energetic lift and solid punch to the gently sweet blueberry and raspberry flavors. Supple, even tannins build slowly on the finish, which hangs on with strong, spice-tinged persistence.
Attractive notes of earth, red and black fruits, spice, lavender, and herbes de Provence all emerge from the medium-bodied 2018 Codice, which has a supple, lively texture, light tannins, and a good finish. Drink this character-filled, well made, undeniably delicious red over the coming 3-4 years.
