    September 4, 2020 - The last bottle continues to drink well. Fruit, balance... very nice. Drink or hold.

    July 28, 2020 - Pleasantly surprised as see there have been mixed reviews. Think it is drinking well at this age, interesting and complex, better than expected.

    April 28, 2020 - OK ..please read. This is not ready unless you decant this for days. I opened the bottle and decanted it for hours the 1st day...Too much tannin. I froze the bottle and defrosted it, and poured a glass. Barely drinkable. I repeated this 2 more times before a glass showed me: A dense dark violet red. A medicinal nose with some dark currant aromas. Full body dark fruit with still large tannin that starts in the middle and extends to the finish. This is much better than the initial pour. It is still very structured, but the fruit might be enough to balance some of the tannin in 5-10 years.....

    April 10, 2020 - bottle was pristine and stored appropriately since I have had it, but wine had terrible odor to it and was undrinkable.

  • dkfinancial Does not like this wine: 87 points

    December 13, 2019 - A sad winemaking effort. The berry fruit is stewed and figgy - the winemaking team certainly wanted a ripe wine and it’s over-the-top. Low acid, still tannic & grippy; there’s no balance and the wine is unpleasant to drink. There are better Spanish reds at half the price with the same organoleptic profile.
