Looked at my notes on this from 80 weeks ago on Delectable and still the same now ie Stalky Stemmy and very Peppery with some ginger. Ultra savoury.

Black/red fruits, smoky spice and a nice touch of salinity. The volcanic earth shows. But reduction doesn't blow off.

A nice wine with good complexity. Red berries, leather and tannins. Some potent acidity but good balance. Does not evolve significntly in the glass

I'm proud of Suerte de Marqués because they're making interesting #spanishwine and they're experimenting on their island of Tenerife and the results are mostly good and sometimes curious. #listan with whole cluster ferments.

Where the La Solana is fruit forward the Ciruelo is defined on the nose by a smoky, meaty and mineral. A wonderfully pure palate with a dark chocolate tannins but very svelte, delicious with a lovely acidity and fresh, red fruited finish
