  • Dry fruits & spice , balance & deep

  • Sweet red fruit, vanilla and spice, good depth and lots of acid and tannic structure. Much too young to drink now but what the heck. Opened up through the meal, and the fruit came to dominate the wood influences. Hold if you have any self restraint. Decant if you do not.

  • Vin espagnol sacré numéro 1 de l'avant dernier TOP 100 annuel du magazine Wine spectator. Beau vin, encore jeune avec des tanins légèrement asséchants. Ce vin possède beaucoup de corps, un beau fruit et des notes de tabac blond. La longueur est bonne à excellente. 92 sur 100.

  • I did enjoy the Wine , Textbook Rioja , Really like it but... Was this worth the #1 of WS in 2013 ? I doubt .

    Was going to Decant it . I took a sip and looked perfect . Quick 15 min in the Decanter back into the bottle and was served two hour later .

    Tabacco , matured banana , Lether , black fruit , Oak but more on the Cedar i'd say than Oak . Medium Tannin , Medium acidity

    Will age well but not a crime to drink it right now

    Tabac , Banane mures , Cuir , Fruit noir , Cedre .

    Bel Achat rien a dire contre mais je doute que ce soit LE meilleur vin de l'année .

  • Le fameux #1 WS de l'année dernière (un peu n'importe quoi finalement).
    Vin carafé pendant près de 2 heures.
    Un superbe nez de fruits noirs,clou de girofle,un peu de cuir et bien boisé.
    En bouche il y a des fruits noirs,tabac brun,cuir et beaucoup de bois.
    Un vin sérieux et pas pour les mongols.
    Il est encore pas mal jeune à mon avis.
    Il doit lui rester facilement un bon 7-10 ans et il devrait être très beau.
    Bu avec bavette de veau/salade/patates bbq
