This was a great change of pace with a nose decidedly on the mineral, austere, and strict end of the spectrum It was spicy with oak and mineral tones, though the oak was almost all absorbed leaving just a hint of spicy cinnamon, sweet baking spice and Graham cracker that added to the bouquet. The fruit was intact, spicy and sweet with limestone and incipient notes of truffle adding depth. On the palate this was seamless with a soft and sweet entry, which builds to a sweet, black, plummy midpalate that is precisely balanced with very fine tannin and acids. The acids and mineral note draw out the finish giving this cut and fantastic definition and length as the finish segues from fruit to a sweet baking spice finale. This is very youthful but a gorgeous wine. 95pts

Classic Rionda nose of iron, seeds, dried rose petals, spice and small red fruits shows lovely freshness and detail. This is another silky wine though it’s  a bit tired and lacks some focus on the palate, again from having been opened the day earlier,  though it is chewy and powerfully with late arriving acidity and truffle notes layered over faded rose petals and spicy red fruit with lots of mineral notes and still with tons of fine grained tannins, While not fruity this remains powerful and young with a long limestone finale, 94pts

Nice but still young, classic showing of anise, florist shop, tar and cranberry on the nose. The palate is still restrained but showing dark cherry and herbs with a firm tannic finish. A great wine that still needs time and will likely evolve into something very special.
