Full bodied and tannic. Classic flavor and intensity, awesome in all ways and just a baby. Densely packed with a complex aroma set, the coaxing from the glass reveals a very typical Contador/Cueva character, though it is for sure a few shades below Contador. The decision to bottle only Cueva was a very good one as the wine is terrific and is likely a success from sacrificing the Contador bottling. This is the highest level of premium wine of the traditional reds in 2013, no Contador.

Full bodied, with lots of spice and ripe red fruits. Roses, cinnamon, chocolate, and vanilla.
