Front loaded with fruit. Has a rubbery component that puts me off.

Great fruit, good concentration of dark berries and spicy minerality, with just a faint hint of oak. Very good considering the price tag.

Lovely wine, ready to drink. Mild aromatics - dark berries and a bit of tobacco that seems to turn to ginger on the palate. Medium bodied, plummy, touch of clean earth, pleasant acidity.

Naked Tempranillo expression with great presence of fruit and silky tannins, cool and chalky minerality with lifted acidity on the back palate. Still needs additional cellaring.

Oddly enough blue fruits..Jammy fruits.. Hints of pepper vanilla and allspice.. On the palate powerful like a Ribera but juicier with a bit more tartness... A very interesting wine...

Peter makes a very modern style of Tempranillo. Rich blue and black fruits, violets, smoked meats, soft leather, tobacco leaf, black tea, crush rocks, irony minerality and dusty tannins. .
