2003 Vintage. This one is amazing! Clear medium garnet with thin watery rim. Clean on the nose still showing a lot of youth and potential. Pronounced flavours of raspberry, blackcurrant, layers of vanilla, spice and leather with a hint of strawberry. Dry on the palate with high smooth tannin, full structured body, medium alcohol with balancing medium+ acidity. Flavours lead with spice and leather but adds on vanilla, raspberry, blackcurrant in waves and goes into a long, complex finish. Very good quality. Aged for 10 years still showing potential to grow. Drink now, but can age even more.

$12.99 at WFM Rocky River. Excellent, opened up into smooth, luscious fruit (a fully ripened plum, oak, spice) with a sustained, oaky (yet not super bombed out oak) smooth finish with the right amount of tannic polish. Not as full bodied as one might imagine, but still ripe with its age (11 years!). Great value.

Clear brownish ruby. Rich sweet aroma of strawberries, leather and musty wood. Very little sweetness on the tongue, light grabby tannins, gentle acid. Tastes of juicy strawberries, vanilla, tart red raspberries, and a hint of coconut on the finish. The age gives it a nice depth for drinking by itself, and the fruity acid works with food too. Nice oaky Spanish wine!

2005. and strong enough with potential to store longer! This is absolutely criminal at only $11. Buy it if you can find it! Aromas of blackberry, cerise, cocoa, tabacco. Tastes amazing! great deep red fruits balanced witha nice figy, cedar undergrowth & vanilla. Mouth feel is spot on. phenomenal! balanced acidity and even tannins....full to medium bodied.
