Spanish wine royalty of the secondary kind.
The color is deep ruby and youthful for 11 years age. The nose is complex showing maturity with muddled plums and blackberry, with mint and roast beef, oak is there but well integrated. The palate is med acidity, med+ body with fine and dusty med+ tannin. Long and classic finish. 🇪🇸

Cloudy, dark cherry colored with aromas of mocha, cassis, blueberry, blackberry and a hint of eucalyptus. The palate is textured and carries through the aromas seamlessly with medium weight tannins. Drink now if you want the flavors or in 5 if you want more refined tannins.

Leather, coffe, earth. Texture is on point and hits that sweet spot from young to old

This is drinking beautifully now!! Dusty oak, sage and herbs on the nose.. the palate is full of sweet berries, dark chocolate and smoothed out tannins! I love this!

A pretty, smooth and lush mouthfeel. Oak a bit too prominent. Nice
