How disappointing! After years of being a standby, the quality of this once juicy, rich, fruity, earthy yet balanced wine has been reduced to alcohol and some dark fruit but no dimension. A real yawn now. Too bad. Glad it was only $11.

Nice wine. Not over the top, but showing some sour cherry notes that clash a little with the very creamy texture. Not as good as I recalled

Vino muy correcto. Con nueve años, presenta un color evolucionado, limpido y brillante en vista. En nariz notas a higos secos, madera y especias. En boca muy agradable, con cuerpo , equilibrado y de persistencia media.
