The winery was founded in 1956, Embocadero Viña el Águila comes from a constellation of vineyards located in “el Monte del Águila” with 90 years of history.
Tasting Note The wine has a dark opaque black ruby color with youthful purple hue. Forward ripe nose, it displays attractive ripe berry fruit. As it opens in the glass it reveals attractive cherry, oak and blackcurrant, coffee nuances wrapped in oak. Full body, yet is remarkably elegant and fresh despite, its obvious weight and concentration. Impeccably balanced, it is remarkably smooth with a firm lingering finish
