Absolutely gorgeous bouquet! Rose petals, lavender, sweet cherries, and a touch of vanilla. Supple entry on the palate with a smooth mouthfeel and lingering finish with lots of fruit and more vanilla. Beautifully structured wine.

Tempranillo with a touch of Garnacha. Amazing nose, sweet cherry vanilla. Then taste is complex with dark cherry and blackberry, vanilla, oak, toast, leather. Tannins stronger that I expected. It’s 2014 but tastes young. I will give it some time.

Deep ruby hue. Moderate extraction. Nose offers fresh black fruit, baking spices, nutmeg, cardamom, coriander, clove, anise, licorice, vanilla, cedar, leather, delicate smokiness and dark chocolate. Strong tannins on the palate. Long finish.

Nothing to argue with here. Big fruit, tobacco and a long finish. Classic rioja

Wow! Perfect bbq wine. Big black and blue fruits with a touch of smoke. Very young and could use more aging and a more solid decant.

Huge, lovely dark cherry notes but alcohol dominant and rather short, hard work

Chewy, full-bodied Rioja with blackberry, cassis and black cherries. Tasty stuff

A nose like buttery streusel on a blackberry pie. This vintage in particular should be set aside for 5+ years to allow the wackier notes to think about what they've done. Overall, stellar. Just young.
