Needs several hours of decanting, but a beautifully made sumptuous wine with profound fruit. Big, rich, balanced, but better in 15 years

@Mike Rowe @David A Lentine @Ron R @Kirk Alexander Thank you to my Bud Ron for sharing this special bottle with me. You guys all know how I feel about wine. They are meant to be shared., enjoyed & drank to encapsulate an an evening or a special occasion. The only thing better than this wine and the others that were enjoyed is the company of my friends which joined us to enjoy it!!! AND you were very much there with us Ron in thought & Spirit!! This was by far the WOTN. As my friend Kirk pointed out "The best producer in Spain". Perfectly intergraded fruit and sweet tannins. Touch of spice which made it oh., so nice!! It is in full stride right now. Such finesse and elegance with an impeccable finish. Thanks Bud!! Cheers!!

Showing fully mature right now, lots of damp soil and dried red currants. 80/20 Tinto Fino/Cab Sauv. Enjoy now!
