Un véritable pur-sang espagnol ! Un vin puissant, qui, la chaleur intense du millésime 2003, démontre une belle fraîcheur et fait preuve d'un équilibre parfait. Ce vin racé, issu d'un assemblage de tempranillo (75 %), de mazuelo (15 %) et de graciano (10 %), dégage d'exubérants parfums de cassis, de bleuet, d'épices, de cuir, de terre, de fumé, de vanille et de torréfaction. En bouche, le vin est ample, charnu, riche, d'une superbe concentration, et la texture presque crémeuse lui transmet une sensation de grande sophistication. Décidément, c'est un très beau vin espagnol, pleinement savoureux et tout en profondeur, qui culmine dans une finale persistante. Une grande pointure! À son mieux entre 2008 et 2010. Passer en carafe une heure et servir à 17 °C. Il accompagnera de belle façon le carré d'agneau, tajine, couscous, gigot... mais de grâce sans sauce à la menthe.

Winemaker's Notes:

Score:90 Points (Stephen Tanzer) Tasting Notes: Gamey red berry aromas complicated by tobacco leather and mineral qualities; a gentle vanilla quality contributes to the old school impression. Pliant red fruit flavors take on a firm edge with air, as well as a riper bitter cherry character. Finishes with solid tannic grip; this is pretty interesting already but should loosen up in a couple of years.
