Casar de Burbia Hombros 2005

Member Review by downing:

After first tasting, held the 2002 for 3 years. Tannins previously dominant had settled out. Nicely balanced on the palate with berry fruit and clove surrounded in an earthy, smoked wood quality. Finish was clean and long. Wish I had bought more.
