A very warm, rich and smooth wine with a ton of extract, tobacco, moss and meatiness. If super rich is your thing, then Pargua was made for you. It oozes black cherry, cassis and buttered cookie flavors, while the finish is like chocolate brownies and another helping of butter. Tastes sweet, but in the best way, although it’s probably not for long-term aging.
Hardly in the same class as the more elevated Pargua, this second wine is roasted and murky, and frankly a little dirty. It’s as if the ripe, healthy fruit went to the $40 Pargua I and the raisiny, heavy stuff to this. Hence, it’s candied, baked, syrupy and hot.
