    March 13, 2021 - 5 toneles de 600 l. "encontrados". De color caoba de media capa con destello ambarinos, la nariz es expresiva, pura elegancia, barniz de mueble viejo, azúcar quemado, especias exóticas, frutos secos tostados. En boca tiene buen ataque, paso muy fino, con notable frescura, atractivos amargos, reaparecen las sensaciones barnizadas y notable persistencia. Excepcional.

    June 14, 2020 - Smoke, bitter orange and furniture on the nose. Really big wine once in the mouth - starts saline and quickly fans out to dominate the palate with salted caramel, dark chocolate and general rancio, but completely dry. Acidity is high and the overall effect is similar to a Madeira. Really long and always demands another sip. Has sufficient depth of flavour to accompany BBQ meat with alacrity.

    March 20, 2020 - Rich nutty nose, orange peel, raisins and figs. Rich and full bodied in the mouth. Deeply salty and dry, almost austere. Dry and cool, a bit of wood. Absolutely a food wine. Wonderful length and complexity.
