Oldie but a goodie. Still a pretty youthful color as this is just ruby and no browning at the rim yet. Nose is complex, though perhaps not more than 5 years ago. On the palate the wine is firm with medium plus acid and a slightly austere finish which lacks a bit of fruit. Perhaps I either should have drunk it years ago or in another 10+?
Disclaimer that I import it.

Like Andrew I got a dry broken cork. And as he mentioned, the wine age worthy yet. Crystalline purple color, pine scents. Delicious plummy cherry fruits. Tannins provide structure acidity refreshes. Long finish. Should easily keep and improve for at least 3 more years.

Slightly dry and broken cork, but a quick decant saved the day. Deep purple color. Intense aromas of pine resin, wild herbs and the aromatic note 'balsamico'. Sturdy and dry, this can take more age. Paired well with a mix of home cooked tapas, but really shines next to meaty dishes and aged cheeses.
