June 20, 2013 - stewed red fruits, sour plum, cherry, cherry kirsch, dried herbs, dill and hints of oak; medium body, sour cherry and plum on the palate with good balance and long finish. Very nice, a little flamboyant, but quite enjoyable.

December 24, 2011 - Very clean, crisp temperanillo made in the older style. A grand wine. It seems I liked it better than I did in Sept. This bottle seemed smooth this time around.

September 24, 2011 - Delicious Rioja, well integrated. Finish not overly long and not quite as smooth as some of the competition. Drinking well, but may benefit from a couple more years on the shelf.
