This took quite a bit of air to open up. Nose features warm sandstone scents, along with plummy dark cherry fruit. Broad but somewhat austere in the mouth. Good acids and drying tannins. Better with my grilled hangar steak than on it own.

UPDATE: on night 2, it seemed fresher and some fresh cherry fruit showed through. The drying, chalky tannins are still there, however. Together, this suggest that this wine will benefit from at least 2 more years of cellaring. Upping rating to 9.1.

2006 Reserva at its peak! After trying the 2009 and 2010 fabulous Regulars, I find that I like the fuller richer more intense fruit then the older 2006 Reserva. Go figure. Keep in mind we tried all without FOOD. That may be the difference. CB

Цветочно-битумный аромат, камень, замша, кефирные оттенки. Неплохо. 15.5/20 (87/100)

Nicely resolved, savory, foresty, everything integrated and smoove. Not going to evolve much (if at all) but it'll stay classy for awhile.

I had very hoped for this wine, but unfortunately it was stored incorrectly and it destroyed the beauty of the wine. You can still enjoy a rich nose with aromas of crushed tomato pasta, farm, earth. Very long aftertaste.

1999 year , clouded wine , I could see clearly sediments at the bottom of the glass, grate chance this bottle was stored inappropriately. Although tannins acidity and balance are okay.
