This was really very good and needed about 45-60 mins of decanting time open...but when it did, damn! Juicy black berry fruits, spice dusty earth, pepper are finished off with drying tannins, framing acidity and medium length finish. Drink Now - 90 points - Paul

Stunning effort for the price popint and definately has benefited from laying down for a few years.Lush rich blackberry fruit, violets, blueberry, rich damp earth, mocha, pepper follow to rounded sweet dark cherry tannins and balanced acidity. The finale is almost port like with it's butterscotch rim and thickness. 92 points - still 24 months of great drinking - Paul

Needed time for the alc to blow off (About 45 mins.) and then it really shined. Typical tempranillo red and dark berry fruits, dry and linear, with dusty tannins and a juicy aftertaste. This has faded over the last year and should be drank now. 90 points - Paul

Heady black and purple aromas fill the air and follow to the palate with earthy notes, pepper, chocolate and dark cherry tannins fill the mouth really well.
