Aurelio opened this inaugural vintage in honor of the passing of wine owner Luis Delgado.
Complex and complete. Youthful colrr that shows some age in the edge, but center is still purple. Nose is intensely cassis, animal/meaty (not dirty), minty, salted plum. This has a lot of life left, if anyone has bottles left. 😅

Very nice & outstanding QPR - straddles Old & New World style with generous blue/black fruit mingled with loamy Earthy leathery funk, some warm spice - very cohesive on palate w/just enough acidity & supple tannins to make this extremely drinkable. — 7 days ago

Release 20 (08,09,10)wonderfully deep, pure and intense. A slightly medicinal quality over lush fruit. Tight and dramatic. Very long. Needs a while to unpack. — a day ago
