Strangely, for a winery I have always associated with traditional Spanish-style wines, this is so modern styled I would never have been able to place it as a Spanish wine of any sort. Big, extracted, dusty, chocolatey scents predominate. Some uber-ripe blackberry. In the mouth, it’s highly- extracted, but actually has good acidity. A bit blocky. Meh.

UPDATE: Night 2 there is more delicate red fruit peeking through the chocolate. Upping from 8.6 to 8.7. Clearly needs air, but I’m not sure this will ever crack a 9.0.

Tegelbrun rand. Doft av kryddor och kräftspad. Inslag av vinäger. Bra frukt med drag åt jordgubbar. Höga tanniner och något oxiderad ton.
