This was incredible. It took a long time to open up, but when it did, ooh baby. Incredible floral notes and spicy palate. True complexity. #riojapower

Lovely and rich and still youthful. Nice nose, palate and moderately long full fruited finish. Good depth and rich fruit. Really lovely and a full package. 94+

At first we thought it was corked. After about an hour it started kicking off and probably with more time would even excel. Black and red cherry notes with earthy - leathery spices. Light, soft and balanced tannins. High rate for its age.
