Rang in 2021 with this - pear, apple. Just the right amount of effervescence. Made a nice mimosa too🥂 — 7 months ago
The producer is using Tinto Fino not Tempranillo. Respectfully, requested Delectable change.
Ten years in bottle, time to check in on my first bottle of six.
On the nose, dark currants. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, baked black plum, raspberries & ripe strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, crushed limestone minerals, dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, steeped fruit tea, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes with red & dark fresh florals.
The body was big and very full with a hour in the decanter it moves to more medium full with another hour in the decanter. The structure, length, tension and balance are just arriving to a sweet spot. Still plenty of life left in this 05. Another 10 years and perhaps more. The tannins are still pronounced but softened & round with a strong dusty presence. The fruits are; gorgeous, sexy, lush & ripe. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum, creamy raspberries, raisins, ripe cherries & strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, dark chocolate, crushed limestone minerals, a fair amount of dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, hints of mint, dry herbs, steeped fruit tea, black licorice, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes, used espresso roast with red & dark, purple, fresh florals. The acidity is near perfect. The long, ripe, lush, well balanced finish is excellent and lasts minutes. Beautiful wine with sex-appeal.

Really enjoyed this deep rich versatile red—very smooth and substantial. — 4 months ago
The bouquet has many facets...from exotic ripe cherries, soft black currants & then moving to sweet fig. The complexity is somewhat bold and rich with medium tannins and a supple lingering finish from beginning to end! — 9 months ago
Very nice. Lots of nose. A bit astringent, just a bit. Wet stones, oak but fruity mencia for sure. Day two even better. — 6 years ago
