Decanted about an hour prior. A positively gorgeous wine that just seemed to get better the longer it sat; gaining power and expressing more and more life. VA on the nose; to be expected. Dark cherry fruit, leather, mushrooms, kalamata olives. Unbelievably fresh. Winner.

A baby. It started kicking and screaming 30-40 minutes in. Plush structure with weighted tart fruit, fresh herb and fall spices. Healthy dose of earth and balanced oak influence. It's unfair to compare this to Burgundy in terms of length and complexity, which it matches without doubt, but deservedly should stand alone as a unique traditional voice in Rioja. And still yet it should be of the highest compliment.

A blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha, and 10% Mazuelo and Graciano, and aged for 10 Years in old American oak barrels! Wow!! The 1995 is the current release, and the bottle is sealed with red wax! Light Ruby with complex aromas of red fruit, spices and smoke. On the palate cherry flavors with herb spice, vanilla, smoky oak, leather and hints of pepper. Well balanced with smooth tannins and a long lingering finish ending with earthy spice tones. Very Nice, something really special!

Opened with Ah so....what a nose ! smells more like an old burgundy. Raspberries, cherries menthol and herbs. Tannins are mellow but present, acidity is medium high and alcohol medium. The taste is pure enjoyment and very long in the mouth. What a nice wine !
