Great value Reserva. Lots of oak ( vanilla) influence. Nice balance, body and acidity. Very enjoyable fruit notes of cherry plum blackberry red fruit. Ther is an earthy side with black fruit cassis rounding out the flavor profile. Suggested

A very fruit forward and earthy wine, 2hr. Decant. On the nose I am getting BlackBerry, leather, cedar, dark chocolate, stewed prunes and oak.
The palate is much different! Tar, bitter dark chocolate, dark berries..not as giving of character. Vigorous swirling in glass to get heat on back of throat to dissipate. Will allow more time to relax and possibly render my judgment!

Leather, blackberry tobacco. Love this vintage Cune. Perfect with a prime flank steak and grilled veggies. Loved the Igor notes as well. Three layers and all terrific.

Classic producer with a mostly Old World style but this was more fruit focused and lacked acidity. Inky purple w/nose of slightly underripe blackberry & cherry, some hints of leather & damp Earth - showed med to light bodied and disconcerting dryness on finish.
