Elegant, delicate and vibrant red fruit on the nose. Beautiful smoke and spice from oak. Amazing acidity and balance. Whoa I loved this wine.

Good notes but lacking backbone, structure. Dark and brooding. — 2 years ago
Only reason not 10 is because it needs just a little more age. Balance, complexity, and notes I’ll never forget... the most lovely wine I’ve had in a long long time. Whoa...
Stunning blue fruit that I’ll never forget, wet stone, amazing sweet but slightly green floral notes, oak that needs more time to age - a little “sawdust”. Med/light body - lighter than expected and I liked it - and lighter in color. 14.5% alcohol but tastes a little lower than that.
Bought at fav wine shop in RH — a year ago
Up north near Basque region (north of Haro). Winemaker is from Burgundy and brought refined approach to Tempranillo . Reminds me of very high end Bobal (La Estrecha, one from fav SF wine shop). Medium + body and smooth soft palate. Ripe red fruit and as with all things Basque food... delicious and can’t wait to have more.

Complex bouquet and smoke on nose, great weight, red ripe fruit — 2 years ago
Unreal. Soft mouthfeel, blueberries and floral notes are what immediately comes to mind. Structure of tannins and acidity are perfect and finish is incredible. Can’t wait to try again and again.

Good Fellow indeed! My taste and what I like from OR PN: med/light body; bright floral and oak/smoke notes on nose; rose petals, plumb, light red young fruit on palate. All around GREAT young wine. Can’t wait to age... — 2 years ago
