Still vibrant acid and high tone red fruit. Oak adding excellent secondary of coconut and dill. All that with the savory deliciousness of 50 years in bottle.

This one is nice!!! 100% Tempranillo dried rose petals, red fruit, vanilla, spice and a hint of espresso. Balanced and has a 25-30 sec finish. Beautiful!

Cork had dropped in without me noticing (no idea when). Still a pleasant drink but obviously not at its best. Nice acidity and a good pepper and paprika nose but with a keroseney overtone tree that didn't blow off.

Wow! We opened this 2 days ago and it was huge and needed to breathe...big time. Now? It's gorgeous! Red cherries galore, cedar, vanilla, cassis w/ vegetal undertones. Juicy entrance w/ beautifully integrated tannins and lovely acidity. #Rioja wow!
