Drank this last night at Coqueta in SF after pitchers of Sangria! So palate was bit off but wine sang elegantly start to finish. Very different than last bottle from same lot so bottle variance in these are huge. This one was feminine and lovely as last one bit like Brutis...weird.

The best of the 3 64's I brought to Sammy Hagar's El Paseo Spanish wine dinner. Base neck, good cork, port like texture. Oozed ripe bit raisiny front side which mellowed and showed layers of rich leathery texture. Along with 28...see why great vintage but few today liked it.

Alive and well with thick cherry fruit. No reason to keep longer though.

Unicorn. This wine killed it. 1964 great vintage gran reserva. Leather, tobacco, bottle age but still alive on the palate. Really nice.
