Had this with a suckling pig in Segovia. A first on both accounts. Incredible wine with richness and depth though a bit lighter than I expected. Nice fruit and good acid that cut through the rich meat of the 20 day old roasted milk fed suckling pig. I don't know which I liked more but they both went together so nicely. Look forward to having the wine by itself sometime! [NR]

The palate is crisp and honeyed on the entry, counterbalanced by its racy acidity, leading towards a waxy textured finish with subtle almond and dried pineapple notes lingering long in the mouth. Superb...95" WA 08/12
