    March 12, 2017 - Surprisingly good. Complexity with layers of leather, chocolate, and dark fruit. Can't beat the price.

    June 28, 2016 - A nice surprise. I was expecting something decent and this was much better. Without food the alcohol comes through but besides that the blueberry, leather, and earthy flavors are delicious. This is very full and acidic.

    June 14, 2016 - Dense, a little green pepper(not unlike a young Bordeaux), tannins remain but soft. Next bottle in 2-3 yrs.

    February 26, 2015 - Dark ruby color. Intense earthy characteristics of tobacco, dark cacao, and leather. The best Amancaya vintage from my standpoint.

    February 2, 2015 - Decanted for 2 hrs, melted the tannins and showed some harmony in the glass. Close to the end of its drinking window IMO, but if I can choose I'd have drunk all the bottles I had at this stage - somehow charming and more elegant than the younger versions of it.
