Deep rusty colored thick legged red with sun-ripened blackberry, tart cherry, cocoa powder, summer herbs, and hints of pie spices on the nose. Ripe blueberries, blackberry pie, bittersweet chocolate, and kirsch with hints of mushroom powder, cloves, and bacon fat on a lingering finish. Very nice, great value

So the 2010 is one of four vintages with the Seleccion Especial denotations. That means it’s supposed to be incredible. 2001 Vina Ardanza was got me started with wine (that was also an SE year). Not sure this approaches that just yet but it’s very solid. It’s possible this needs two or three years in the bottle to settle in. Right now it’s a bit watery but all the pieces are there. Drink 2021-2024
