Drank at a Spanish restaurant in Bucharest. High cost performance, lasts long on palate.

I'm actually getting a lot of bright red and black fruit, which was a touch unexpected. Toastiness and tobacco combine with the fruit on the palate to deliver a delicious punch. Well played with this one, could easily age longer.

If Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Anniston made a baby in the Vatican, the pope would baptize the child in this wine and then drink it out of the baptismal pool. Blessed nectar

This is big and strong. Blackberry, plum, and dried strawberries, with a little black pepper. Earth and slate minerality, with chewy tannins. Acidity is strong and almost harsh, which is necessary to balance the strength of the other components.
