Leather, suede black fruits, dark and brooding finish. On deck for lamb loin. Having tasted it as a barrel sample, can attest it is taking on age well.

Bought this wine at the vineyard in Spain a couple of years ago - still a very young wine - lovely strawberry on the mid-palate - good length - impressive wine

Intenso y muy atractivo en nariz, con aromas de fruta confitada y negra como las ciruelas negras, moras y cerezas picota que se funden con notas balsámicas y especiadas de pino, regaliz negro y humo. Y en boca es un vino profundo, de acidez viva y de rasgos afilados, con unos taninos austeros, y mucha vida.

Excellent Tempranillo from another relatively young bodega, from Castilla y Leon. Ripe berry fruits with licorice, thyme, and a lovely balsamic touch. Need time to round out the sharp acidity and the firm tannins, but at this young age it paired very well with a juicy steak.

Smell of a Tempranillo. Taste is well integrated. A little bit of fruit. Best of the bunch in terms of integration. 9.0
