Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 92 points

  • Eguren wines tasting with Marcos Eguren (Brussels): Clear dark red colour. In the nose dark and red berries, aromatic-flowery violet, some vanilla, slightly sweetish note, very pleasant. Its nose is very modern and ambitious (read “smells expensive”), so there are clear traces of the style of winemaking. Full bodied on the palate with high fruit concentration, slightly sweetish notes, clearly present but well integrated tannin (more than El Puntido 2006), good acidity. 92-93 p.
    Claimed to be the wine of the tasting with the most capacity for long storage, and perhaps it has the concentration to last almost for ever. I’m sure that a couple of years of cellaring would make it more elegant and complex in its already impressive aromas, but it is not obvious to me that a wine with such a massive (if well integrated) oak component is a wine for truly long cellaring.

  • Aromatically - sweet black fruit, tobacco 9leaf, and black tea and herbs. On the palate it has a fat sweet mid palate with super fine grain tan7nins.
