I love Tempranillos, and this one is no exception. Fresh blackberry on the nose and palette. The wine also has a little zip with some carbon dioxide remaining from production. Wonderfully drinkable!
Nose is full of peach, white flowers, light cream and touches of almond.In the mouth the wine is light with a nice acidity and pear/peach flavors. Very one dimentional. Pleasant enough though with a short finish and no persistance. Touch of bitter alcohol on the finish leaves me unimpressed.
Medium dark yellow in color showing a bold and perfumey bouquet of white flowers, fleshy peach and almond cream, reminiscent of turrón. In the mouth, the wine shows a lighter body than I would have anticipated, with light acidity and a medium short, slightly hot finish, of pear and almond paste.
Dark red with a rim that touches on brown. The nose is full of dried fruits and wood reminding me of a blend of an LBV port and Oloroso sherry. In the mouth the fruit is nice with a richness that fades quickly. Somewhat thin overall in relation to the fruit on the nose. Mild tannins that support the wine a bit, and not unpleasant at all, just uninsprired. Dried cherries, wood, and a somewhat short finish.
Dark, inky red in color with a gorgeous nose of raisins, dried cranberries, plum and molasses. Reminds me of a Pedro Ximenez, or even an LBV port. Unfortunately, the rich and vibrant nose doesn´t match the palate, where the flavors evaporate rather quickly leaving a thin film of raisins, dried cherry and coffee. To be frank, the light, flabby body kills this wine for me.
