More acidity on first taste than I was expecting but that is probably down to the beautifully fresh cherry notes. The taste then evolves on the palate, bringing out the American oak barrels in the form of a long aftertaste, smoky leather mixed with a zing of citrus.

Classic leather and cherry nose. Sweet red fruit, esp cherry, and tobacco. Lacking some mid palate. Good fine tannins give decent length. Good

Wine had more punch than the 2001 from Vina Tondonia, but it was not special. Medium fruit and pleasant but not a heavyweight 86

70% Tempornilla. 20% Garnacha and the remainder of 2 grapes with which I am not familiar. Stored in used American oak barrels for 5+ years according to WA. A beautiful blend from great winemaker. Thank you Morell Wine for the heads up

Extremely dry and wildly oxidized. The hazelnut and almond on the nose with even a bit of hardwood dust belies the lean, sinuous energy at the spine.
