This is simply an explosively fruity, deep and rich wine, though it remains remarkably well defined. There’s a fair amount of oak here, but the layers of fruit aromas from the Grenache and Mazuelo really add complexity to the nose. In the mouth, one finds powerfully rich yet fresh blackberry fruits paired with some assertive and New World-styled, oak induced flavors. The fruit powers through on the finish, which shows intense floral, leather and black spice elements that really make the fruit pop. This is a bold wine, leaning slightly more towards a New World style, yet it does so with some finesse and elegance. Great wine. 93pts
