    June 9, 2017 - Even with 12 yrs of age on it, this wine is holding up well with flavorful deep berry fruits with just the right amount of earthy tones. Well balanced and shows how good even the inexpensive Spanish wines can be.

    October 31, 2014 - $12 purchase 7 years ago. Holding up fine. Smooth with deep berry flavors, Short finish. Hard to complain at this price point. Drained the bottle with friends while waiting for the kids to finish Trick or Treating

    February 8, 2014 - It's hard to fine a better $11 bottle. Fruity, lots of dark plumb and jam. A hint of earth and spice. Leather on the nose.

    December 26, 2013 - Here I am again tasting one of my favourite wines, and the vintage continues mightily to impress. Altos is a perennial favourite for me, especially the magical 2005, which just keeps on getting better. Still very dark, almost blue. Big nose of roasted coffee beans, cocoa and prunes. Voluptuous, big, bold and expressive. This is assertive but not excessive, expansive but not explosive, firm but balanced. Lovely finish of cream and oven-fresh buns, with a slightly earthy, rustic sensation overall. Just great. I'm now extending the drinking window to 15 years rather than the original ten.
