  • Hints of anise, sandalwood with black cherry on the nose. Still vibrant fruit with flinty notes good acidity and mixed red berries.

  • More drinkable and enjoyable than most '03's. Shows the vintage heat but has balance and the fruit has freshness. Seems young and ultimately didn't hold my interest compared to other choices in front of me.

  • This old-word diamond in the rough is hanging over the finish line of magnificence--will it get over the finish line before reduction sets in? Clearly the old-vine Carinena is holding it back; it is otherwise satiny and plump, ripe with soft tannins but not quite there yet. One can sense that it is on the brink of a tightly contained explosion of blue flowers and black fruits. The question is whether another year or so will do the job--or kill the patient.

  • Opened for 30 min. Dark-medium cherry color, denotes some age. Intense and complex bouquet with notable minerality, red ripe fruit, tobacco, some black pepper and liquor. This wine has aged gracefully and still has a lot of power left: it's medium bodied, carries a medium to high acidity, balanced and with sweets tanins made of of red fruit. It ends with a moderate lenght and some dryness. I wrongly suspected this was way on downhill, but certainly has some life and energy left. Drink in now-next 2-3 years.

  • Not very good appeared to be past it's prime. Slight oak no fruit and little to no body. Perhaps I just got a bad bottle the cork did brake. I had one sip and throw out the rest
