Last vintage was ‘11, there were no ‘12 or ‘13, tried a few ‘14’s. Deep Ruby a blend 70% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano & 10% Mazuelo, aged new French oak for 15 months (‘11 was 24 mos). Full red fruit aromas with floral, oak & pepper spice. On palate ripe red fruit flavors, complex with layers of fruit & spice, noting espresso, cacao & licorice. Tannins are beginning to soften. Well balanced, long finish ending with fruit, spice and oak. Decant or let sit in the cellar for a while. Nice!

What a pairing!!! Super Bowl Chili that I've been making since age 11 (43 years). Tea, leaves, leather, baked cherries, blackberry bramble, cedar. Medium plus bodied, big alc, medium + bodied (wish it had a bit more weight). Tannins are smooth. 92+ points
