The dark, brambly aromas are subtly overlaid with tobacco, vanilla and dried spices. Earthy notes bolster the black cherries and plums on the palate. Finishes with firm tannins, but they're mellow enough to make this wine drinkable now with rare beef or lamb.
The 2001 Tinto, which is aged 15 months in American oak (most of it new), exhibits a deep ruby/purple color in addition to a rich perfume of graphite intermixed with blackberries, black currants, and flowers. Full-bodied, elegant, rich and pure, with loads of fruit, abundant glycerin, and a long, concentrated finish, it is still unevolved and primary, but reveals tremendous potential.
This balanced red marries sweet, toasty oak and ripe plum and blackberry flavors in a muscular yet luscious texture. The long finish echoes with black fruit and spices. Best from 2003 through 2010.
The 2005 Crianza is purple-colored with an attractive bouquet of cedar, mineral, earth notes, espresso, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with ample ripe fruit, a firm structure, good depth, and plenty of flavor. This solid effort should be at its best between 2012 and 2020.
Bright ruby-red. Superripe but fresh aromas of black cherry and exotic dried red fruits. Supple, suave and fairly deep, with generous flavors of dark cherry, currant and raspberry confit; jammy but not stewy. In the very ripe style of this hot year without losing its balance. Finishes with thoroughly ripe, smooth tannins.
Saturated bright ruby. Superripe aromas of raspberry, espresso, cherry skin and black licorice. Chewy, deep and highly concentrated; youthfully tight but with no rough edges. The sappy flavors of black raspberry, mocha and spices show lovely verve. Finishes very long and aromatic, with building tannins.
This red packs a lot of flavor on a supple frame. Black cherry, blackberry, smoke, mineral and espresso notes show focus and depth, backed by firm but well-integrated tannins that dissolve on a finely etched, floral-scented finish. Drink now through 2018.
