    June 22, 2016 - After enjoying this bottling in previous vintages, and then my last bottle ('10) being not too much to my liking (fake, candied fruit which may have just been youth), this was a nice bounce back. Ruby to garnet in color. Aromas of dark and dark red fruits (darker with air), fresh tilled soil, tar, smoke, and eucalyptus. Medium body and finish, medium(-) acidity, and red grenache fruit flavors that also shifted darker with air, along with black tea and tangerine. Worked well with casual burrito night. BTW, I found this drinking pretty well now, with no detracting tannins. I think it could hold a few years, but wouldn't say it's necessary.

    March 27, 2016 - A lush bouquet of black cherry, ripe strawberry, and florals identify the varietal as grenache. The wine itself is a pale ruby red. In the mouth, the wine is medium bodied, but a little on the thinner side, with tastes of black cherry and leather. The finish adds a black pepper note, but this is where some fierce tannins kick in. Yes, the wine has life left, but is not pleasant to drink at this point. Maybe some heavy decanting will help, but I held the last half of the bottle for a couple of days and that did help. I say HOLD for 5 years, or decant for a few hours.

    December 12, 2015 - One of my favorite Tres Picos. Boisterous aromas and flavors of black cherry and blackberries. Absolutely delicious. A hint of pepper and leather adds complexity.

    January 10, 2015 - needs a bit of air time and to warm up a bit from cellar temperature. The spice now is secondary to the cherry and raspberry fruit and the leather tones on the back end.
