Review from original list creator: "Powerful aromas of ink, oak, violets, medicinal herbs and dried plummy fruits greet the nose with hints of peppery spice and a leathery edge. Powerful and dense in the mouth,this has already developed a rather supple texture, though with plenty of tannic heft still filling the mouth. The spice notes, subtly floral and medicinal toned emerge early on the palate followed by carob laced dried cherry and plum fruit. Those supple tannins build up on the backend where the flavors turn more leather and cooked beefy toned. A little blueberry fruit emerges on the palate with some air, and helps add freshness to the finish which is broad, powerful and dark. Nuanced oak adds a nutty tone here but otherwise is fully absorbed by this rich, powerful wine. with air this gains a lovely smooth, juicy, and yet slightly viscous texture in the mouth. World class and while great today this has another 5-8 years of life. Great Crianza. 92pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
