Review from original list creator: "Dark and mysterious on the nose with slow to emerge aromas of herb stem, plum, skin, mineral earth, and a hint of pencil eraser. Smooth and a bit matte in the mouth, this unfurls like a robe on your tongue, not heavy but opaque with rich blackberry fruit that shows suggestions of truffles and spice on the palate. the tannins and acid are both totally absorbed in the black hole of fruit on the palate, emerging only on the finish which is moderately long with dusty tannins and fine bitter cherry and pomegranate accents. This is an outlier amongst value priced Garnacha with a refined nature about it. It’s almost aristocratic in its restraint and promise positive improvement in the future. 88pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
