New French oak regime and alcohol still prevalent, but the window to this wine’s future is wide open as the fruit is just now coming through on the palate. If you drink now it needs a full days’ decant at least. Otherwise get a few and sit on them for another 7-10 years.

100% French Oak-aged Tempranillo from 100 year old bush-trained vines high above Ribera del Duero. Serious weight, and kind of a crazy value for lovers of burly, modern reds.

Color of clear yet vivid bloody red. Nose is beautiful with chocolate, sweet oak, dried strawberries, raisins, strength of alcohol, and a bit leather. Taste is surprisingly dry, with good tannins, oak, more dried strawberries, mineral, cherry, and good acidity. Aftertaste of long subtle acidity, more oak, mellow tannins. Enjoy her now.

The best Tempranillo my palate has discovered in years. Where can I find more of this magic?
