This is very good. Plums, sour cherry, soft vanillin oak. Complex, integrated and still vigorous. In a good place right now.

Still a youngster, but showing well. You will wish you had more in your glass when this is gone.

1994 Cune Gran Reserva:
A very unique and special bottling for the wedding of the Spanish royal family Prince and it is a worthy subject, indeed, loaded with layers of rich blackberry fruit, intense concentration and plenty of American oak to keep it going until the Prince has the next heir to the throne.
