Interesting. Major spearmint bomb on opening that persists beyond decant. Deep red color. Perfectly bodied for me. Medium and very smooth.

The nose is very complex. Under the spearmint there is a floral note, and something my brain identifies as turmeric.

No tannins.

I certainly wouldn't put this with a steak. But we are having Spanish tapas, and it works nicely with the spicier items. Otherwise, the spearmint is misplaced.

91+ points
