Fine toasty oak on the nose that reveals itself after a short breathing time. Heady on the palate with strong oak and berries.
One of my favorite wines. Classic Tempranillo - leathery, rich, tannin. While this wine is drinkable now, it's still pretty tight, and I imagine it will age quite well. Decanting makes this wine much better. Balanced
Rich and full wine at each stage. Rose and oak on the nose, with hints of cedar. Mouth feel reminded us of spicy hot chocolate, with nice tannins that gave the wine a good viscosity. Hints of thyme, green olive, smoke and chocolate. Nice wine for the price.
