Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Fist, the Gran Reserva is significantly better than the Reserva. Deep Ruby with dark fruit aromas, oak and toasty spice, has 10% Graciano in blend. On the palate plum, cherry and blackberry flavors with notes of leather, cacao and vanilla spice. Savory ripe fine tannins on long finish ending with fruit and tangy oak. Tasting Sample.

Deep Ruby with dark fruit aromas and sweet baking spice notes. On the palate blackberry and black cherry flavors with notes of cinnamon, cacao and earthy spice. Savory full tannins on medium finish ending with fruit and forest floor character. Ok for price. Tasting Sample.

Almost 15 years old and is drinking like it is half of that. Can't believe how much fruit is still present after that long. A really good wine and will hold for 10 more years.

Tannins are barely palpable. Sweet dark fruit hints, cassis, leather. Very good wine - as I expected. This label never disappoints.
