Deep, clear garnet red. Ethereal, balsamic nose with a delicate vanilla touch; red meat. A little warmer, the alcohol of 14.5% is noticeable. Fine sandy, smooth tannins combined with a medium plus acidity and a medium body give a wonderful structure. The wood is almost perfectly integrated. Aromatic a melange of cherry marzipan, balsamic notes, laurel, dark berry fruits, plums, milk coffee and a nice extract sweetness. In the rear part of the palate and in the finish with delicate bitter notes, reminiscent of cherry pits and supporting the structure - until the beautiful long finish. This Gran Reserva has all the qualities for a long life - structure, density, juiciness and balance.

Very Deep ruby coloration. On the nose, chocolate, oak, cherry, leather, spice, raspberry, strawberry and florals. On the palate, medium to full bodied. Elegant and long lived on the palate. Extensive finish. Notes of cherry, dark berries, chocolate, spice, balsamic and oak.

Was expecting it to be more full bodied but I also did not let it decant which could be part of the issue.

Leathery, oaky, a touch medicinal, but in a good way. If you love fruit..... forget it.
