Succulent cherry fruit, leather, pipe tobacco, all very well integrated, finishing with graceful tannins. A well endowed gran reserva.

Nicely aged, shows good balance between fruit and secondary flavors.

2013. At $26 I’m pleasantly amazed at the quality of this wine. 9 years old and a really graceful blend of soft tannin, blue fruit and enough acidity to keep everything nicely harmonious. Bravo

Beautiful, the mouth feel is luxurious to say the least... Smooth, soft yet don't let this lead you to believe that the flavour is anything but delicious.

It may have been past it’s prime due to exposure to oxygen. It was a 10 year old wine with a brittle cork.
