Probably too young, knowing these wines’ capacity to age, but this was fairly unbalanced with a lot of oak and not a great deal else. Not half as good as the Condado de Haza Crianza tried the week before. I’d be very intrigued to try this in another five or so years.

Deep Ruby, aromas of sweet red and black fruits with pepper spice and oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry and currants with licorice, cacao, tobacco & toasty oak tones. Soft full ripe tannins, wonderful balance, lively acidity on a long finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Very nice!

Barnyard after the storm, decomposition, life, all with a deep inhalation.

Medium bodied, with overtones of cassis, blackberry. Undertones juniper, licorice, persimmon acid and fine cedar shavings, which integrate well within and linger with great length.

I'm giving it a few extra tenths for the way the fruit and acid play together in such juicy wonder. Perfect pairing tonight with our grilled loin lamb chops.

Vino de capa alta, en nariz primero mermelada de frutas rojas y negras, después miel tabaco y cuero. En boca fruta canela y vainillas con mucha expresión. Un vino goloso y redondo.😋😋😋
