    January 24, 2016 - OMG I wish I could still afford to purchase these wine. They deliver big time. Pop and pour. Huge cab nose and perfect balance on the palate. Not the 2005 which is still one of my top 5 wines but this wine truly performs.

    November 7, 2014 - Very good. All in balance and big, strong but not overpowering flavors.

    October 2, 2014 - Outstanding. Smooth, refined and in a good place. Drank from 1/2 bottle and it was perfect. 95++

    April 24, 2014 - Some Napa CS (Vila Viniteca - Madrid): Toffee punch at first. Espresso also.
    Then black fruit. Smokie and mineral on the nose, that's a performance.
    Liquorice on the palate. Full volume. Richly mouthfeel. Very lengthy. That's a superior class bottle. Just needs time to show its real beauty but promises.

    Al principio, golpe a caramelo de café con leche. También expreso.
    Después fruta negra. Ahumada y mineral en nariz, así se comporta.
    En boca regaliz. A pleno volumen. Sensación en boca plena. Muy buen recorrido.
    Es una botella de clase superior. Sólo necesita tiempo para mostrar su belleza de verdad pero promete.
