Took an hour to have the American oak blow off and for the tannins to integrate. Too rough for the bolognese it was paired with, but hours 2-3 with it decanted were excellent elegant fruit with depth and structure. Long life ahead, per usual.

As expected, even at 12yrs, this is very youthful. It’s rich without being heavy or dense. Cherry tobacco leaves accompanied by herbs de Provence and coconut/dill shavings on the nose. Crazy tart on the palate with high acidity. Mostly black cherry tart and fleshy cherry skin with a more herbal seasoning type finish. Give this time to evolve and add layers.

The 2007 ‘Vina Bosconia’ has a high percentage of Garnacho blended in (15%) with small portions Graciano and Mazuelo. The wine is another sensational effort from this storied estate, especially considering the challenges of the 2007 vintage. The nose opens with beautiful red fruits with blood orange and sage that are nicely woven into the nose. The palate unveils wonderful freshness and richness considering the challenges of the vintage. Pipe tobacco, leather, crushed mint and blood orange zest all connect with the sour red fruits. Beautiful now this has a long life ahead of it. Drink 2019-2035- 93

Savory, pepper, animal, clay earth, soy sauce, red and black fruit with toast. Classically balanced and delicious.

Nom nom...well aged and needs to breathe. Well worth the $38.

Really nice. Leather, earth, red fruit, yet still complex, delicate and light on its feet. Buy for cellar! Years to go. ~$40.

A nice Tempranillo blend. Smooth, medium to light body and slightly smoky.

Har legat länge på gamla fat. Lätt syrlig, balsamvinäger, ek, kryddig buljong. Smaken har låg frukt och domineras av syra och kryddor. Bra matvin!

Tart cherries, plum and tobacco. Despite its age still very young and fresh.

A little rustic with the fruit mingling with a good dose of wood...this should be a very good cellaring candidate. The wine has a nice acidity and good depths of flavors
