    May 23, 2016 - Bon mais beaucoup trop jeune - réduit et fermé, très tannique, aurait pu être carafé quelques heures - potentiel intéressant.

    March 2, 2016 - WA scored this 95. Right now it is a bit young. The oak is not yet integrated. But could be drink right now beacause its really good. Drink now or age further for more secondary notes.

    January 20, 2015 - Color picota, ribete cardenalíceo, capa tirando a alta y fina lágrima intensamente tintada. Aromas de fruta negra madura, tostados no muy marcados y atenuados por las densas notas licorosas, algo de cereza escarchada, finos especiados (pimientas en grano, algo de clavo con toques marcados de nuez moscada), ligeros balsámicos y un fondo de terruño bastante marcado. Potente entrada en boca, astringencia muy marcada y bien secante, recorrido con nervio y bastante garra debido a sus taninos muy intensos y algo verdosos lo que motivan una intensa sequedad algo punzante en algunos momentos, buena acidez, fruta madura, especiados bien presentes, amplio, algo carnoso y muy persistente. Final muy largo, postgusto de fruta roja madura y retronasal licoroso y especiado.

    Un vino que, sin lugar a dudas, tiene mucho futuro pero hay que olvidarse de él hasta dentro de un mínimo de 2 años.
