Inky purple red. Black olive, butter, raspberry and licorice notes in nose. Blackberry, raspberry and red fruit jam notes in mouth. Muddy black licorice-tinged finish with fine seed tannin sediment (unfiltered), slight soapy mouthfeel with black olive and raspberry notes in finish and aftertaste. Worth filtering or decanting, if you like. Good balance, moderate astringency, initially with some spiky tactile finish from tannins and tartaric crystals

Dry but not Mojave, fruity but not a pie, and sweet but not candy. Delightful.

Drank this at Vino Veritas with John King and Emma on 11/12/18. Not as tannin-y as most Tempranillo wines. Very good!
