Very dense, very dark and spicy and full of licquorice. This is a very powerful wine and seemed fine to drink now. The outstanding element is liquorice but bold blackberry and plum compliment. Very nice.

92 Points Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate:`The 2006 Vinas de Gain is old-vine Tempranillo aged in 40% new French oak for 12-14 months. Deep crimson-colored, it offers an alluring perfume of truffle, pencil lead, vanilla, blackberry, and black cherry jam. Full bodied, the wine is opulent yet elegant. It has enough stuffing to evolve for 4-5 years and should drink well from 2012 to 2025.`

The 2006 Vina El Pison comes from a single Tempranillo vineyard planted in 1945 on pure limestone. The wine was aged for 16-18 months in new French oak. It has an ethereal nose found only in the greatest wines. Toasty oak, wood smoke, truffle, wild b... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 has given us a delightful and complex Pagos Viejos, with white pepper,balsamic spices, red fruits, and vanillin all evidenced then hints of mocha andhazelnut, and, if it doesn't sound too odd, a backdrop that is almostminty in its purity. Youthful, powerful, and with the Artadi trademark tannins(silky and ripe but persuasive, from ageing in French oak) that will start tosoften in 2010 and improve over the following five years. Juan Carlos'reputation as Spain's best wine-maker is merited through-out hisimpressive range. This wine, close to the top of that range, is my personalfavourite. (Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
