The unanimous tasting group favorite, seemless, silky smooth tannins, Tempranillo and garnacha at their best

Stellar. Really in a fine moment though I would advise drinking vs holding. Was ready when it was released so it's lost a touch of fruit.... But still gorgeous.

Blind. American oak told the story. Burgundy shaped bottle threw me off!

Very lively acidity has helped keep this fresh and tasting great! Wood chips, forest floor, vanilla, still good fruit. Soft on the palate, smooth and easy to drink.

17.5/20 (94/100)

Цвет умеренный, рубиновый, с легким охристым нюансом. Аромат красных ягод, вишни, немного красного яблока, минеральные тона теплого камня, тонкая замша, полный, на вяленых ягодах. Вкус умеренно полный, кожа, замша, красные ягоды, вишня. Акцент на кожу.
