This has got to be the next best thing to a Vega Sicilia as it shares the same winemaking team & terroir.

Oozing with elegance & class, this is one brilliant juice on the early cusp of its drinking window. Perfume of black fruits, rum raisin, smoke, oak. Medium to full bodied, smooth, soft texture with pleasing coffee vanilla flavours. What is most impressive is its splendid, harmonic balance of ripe fruit, bright acidity & velvety tannins. I savoured each sip thru a lip-licking finish.

Viva España!

An elegant Spanish red! Deep ruby colour, very dark at the centre. Ebullient nose of dark fruit, red berries, tobacco and herbs. Round, full, and velvety on the palate, exhibiting distinct peppery and earthy notes. Well-resolved tannins with just the right level of acidity. Long, very smooth finish.
Darkly mysterious slightly aged , hint of Cherry. Sour plums on my tongue, sour cherries too, raspberry ? . Mid Length 4.5.
Superbe! Une belle longueur, rond, sur le fruit. Excellent!
