Slight funk. Sweet red fruits, liquorice, tobacco leaves with tons of dried rosemary. Silky smooth, beautiful.

My go to for a bigger wine. Plum and good juicy tannin and I enjoy all the interesting oak.

From 30-year old vines. 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. Tempranillo spent 36 months on 4-year old American oak, Garnacha spent 30 months on 2-year old American oak, bottled in 2011, released, fall of 2015. Vivid Ruby with red fruit aromas, spices and earthy notes. The palate revealed a complex structure with full ripe fruit, cherry and raspberry with some vanilla, mocha and tobacco notes. The finish had typical Rioja earthy mineral flavor, silky tannins and a long ending. Will continue to improve! Nice!

This has got some serious power and weight. Too much wrapped up tightly, maybe needs a decant or some more bottle time.

Stunning balance savory meaty notes, incense, rich red fruit, bright acidity, and velvety tannins. More complete and multidimensional than the 2005. Very compelling wine at this price point.
