Musky Cherry, prune smell that bites lightly at the nostrils, the taste comes in round and big, sticky before then coming in an underwhelming arch given the attack, that regardless is very full and numbing to both the tongue and roof of mouth, the body essentially dances, meaning it doesn’t come in strong or fade, it jumps, which I find cool. At the end, the wine leaves a prune residue with a persistent but mild acid that creates a favorable combination

So smooth, so complex, just in perfect condition after 9 years.

Sharp definitive ending, big wine. Closed and held back acidity, likely changes with oxidation.

Lighter than expected for a Tempranillo. Pizza wine with a Spanish twist!

Smooth on the lips. Crispy under the nose. At 14.5% alcohol, nice legs. Fruity aftertaste on the tongue. Would highly recommend.
