This delivers the goods for a “second” wine (little brother to Vega Sicilia). Needs lots of air; give it plenty of decant time as it’s quite closed on pop n pour. Plums, red and black berries, minerals, roast beef jus, charcoal smoke, really well integrated oak. The tannins start out super plush, but build with time in the decanter. Savory and velvety at the same time. Needs a little more time in bottle to really shine.
