Beauty is on the inside as the saying goes, although the world around us often seems to focus on public images. At Finca Bacara, they have realized this also happens in the world of wine. What is really important is the wine itself, not the design and label of the bottle, they believe. So they decided to design a label paying homage to what is on the inside. The skeleton represents the structure that keeps us standing and moving, the pure essence of the wine that Tabá expresses.
What does this wine taste like?
Tabá has an intense, deep, bright and attractive claret colour, elegant legs and a beautiful and pensive presentation. Clear and intense aromas with a strong presence of ripe red fruit (cherries in liqueur, plum jam) accompanied by spicy and herbal aromas (mountain herbs and liquorice). A mature mouthfeel with plentiful well-integrated tannins among hints of smoke, leather and tar present in every sip. Smooth and velvety, it cannot hide its Mediterranean warmth but embellishes it with the freshness of the sea breeze on summer evenings. Its intense and lingering finish contains a subtle hint of tomato plants, quite common in Monastrell wines, as well as a seductive saline sensation.
