    December 4, 2015 - Plum and currant jam framed by leather, tobacco, menthol and savory BlackBerry seeds. Delicious, voluptuous and rich. Enough structure keeps it in check. Nice across all palates; almost liqueur like, but not too hot or syrupy. Agree, probably won't get any better, but continue to be impressed with what Spain provides for $15!

    October 13, 2015 - $10 and aged 6 years and it is just right. Not going to get any better. But anvery pleasurable wine with some leather notes to go with the fruit

    November 3, 2014 - Nose like plum jam on toast. Rich palate with lots of plum and blueberry, dry with sassy acidity and tannins and medium finish.
