From a 4.78 ha plot, from ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines, surprisingly elegant, expected it to be a monster, somewhat similar to right bank Bordeaux from that very year. Complex aromas of cassis, tobacco, menthol, stout and pepper. Deep and concentrated, gravelly tannins with a long sweet finish. 14.5%

2005 Single vineyard Tinta de Toro....old ungrafed vines...rich, dense fruit coupled with inorganic minerality and a lengthy finish....best to decant this bad boy a few hours ahead of time...opens up beautifully.

One of the Spanish wines I've had. Great balance, no heat, no overt oak. Elegant. 2004 vintage.

Great bang for the buck. Full body rich velvet texture, long lingering flavor with cassis, black fruit, tobacco, well structured firm tannins and balanced acidity

Medium-bodied with some tannins. Restrained cherry notes. Not particularly complex but very drinkable.

A Spanish bull @ Β£144 that after a 10hr decant was charging right @ ya! Boom what a monster 😈 95-98 potential here πŸ‘ but drinking fab young 😁

🍷 Deep opaque ruby

πŸ‘ƒ Thick chocolate, tar, charred oak, spiced black berry & currant, dark cherry, blueberry & mint

πŸ‘„ Med++ bodied rich, ripe & chunky black berry/currant with dollops of cocoa cream butter w/ violet & coffee tones

🎯 Long oozy gloopy dark fruit chocky chalky boom boom that just rages all over your palate Olé
