Deep and intoxicating nose. Ripe dark fruit and menthol. Rich texture but energetic palate. Firm medium tannins. Great character. Dark cherry, chocolate, meat, menthol, orange. New oak? Needs food!!

Very well balanced. Structured to age a few years but ready to drink now. Would pair well with a nice marbled ribeye

I can finally see all the hype about Ribera Sacra (only had a few). Loads of fresh black fruit, tar, and licorice, but so incredibly fresh. Amazed a 14% wine could be so gluggable. Bright acids, mineral, with nice tannic grip. Go get some

2010 Looking fine. So much intrigue on the nose layered and fun! Palate a bit angular and disjointed. Be interesting to see it in time.
