Rich and concentrated nose with baked vanilla ice team over dried pineapple with a dash of honey. Big on oak but not in a bad way, though still a bit toasty for my taste. Palate is a bit more toned down and any tannin from the oak is nicely balanced with ripe but elegant peach and tangerine fruit and a lovely weight on the mid palate, elegant exit.

Hard to do more traditional with this historic family estate dating back to 1647 - a good quality Navarra but to much oak for me , maybe to intense !?

Tempranillo 58%, Cab Sauv 13% and Merlot 29% from Navarra. More fruit, structure and power than expected. Should have keep it longer in the cellar.

Minty, woodsy and lively nose on a core of light cherry, ripe but soft plum. At almost 30 years still turning heads, and palates. Was a great match for brined and braised veal tongue.

Very Bdx-like! Classical and elegant, cedary notes, ripe cherry, graphite, touch of leather. Tannines completely dissolved, very smooth, drinking dangerously easy. Very pretty wine.

Fantastic Chardonnay. Wonderful restaurant in Barcelona and a terrific bottle of wine for a long lunch.
