2010 Gran Reserva. Oak fully integrated now and in the background. Super balanced. Best Lacuesta wine I’ve had

Opened this wine having purchased it many many years ago. Despite several house moves, this wine absolutely retained wonderful fruit flavours and balance. Paired with a garlic rosemary leg of lamb, dauphinois and a hot beetroot, squash, feta and pinenut salad. Amazing.
