This wine was consumed later in the evening after 3 other bottles in our group. It was perfect timing. Tannins softened, lots of expression of black and red fruit. Certainly lots of cocoa on the nose as well. Very enjoyable to drink, although it is time to consume if you have inventory.
Vanilla and cocoa on the nose. Taste of dark cherries, vanilla and blueberry. Smooth with just a hint of tartness. Juicy, lots of fruit. Soft, silky finish. Not much tobacco like I'm used to with tempranillos. Had with BBQ and it paired well. Not a strong wine, but didn't get overpowered. Love this wine...wish this wasn't our last bottle.
Excellent paired with both a beef stew and a chicken and root vegetable soup. Good fruit, nice nose. Vacuum bottled for second day and held up well. Wish I had more - only one bottle of the 2005 remaining.
