    October 21, 2015 - Color cereza picota, ribete granatoso intenso, capa bien cubierta y gruesa lágrima lenta bien tintada. Magnífica intensidad en nariz que sin agitar la copa inicialmente te recuerda el jamón ibérico en plena curación y que al agitar desaparecen por completo dando paso a unas frescas notas que recuerdan la pineda, la resina, los mentolados frescos, la carne roja picada y bien especiada, fruta madura con grosellas y arándanos azules, mermelada de moras, y unos tostados intensos muy elegantes, notables especias en granos, mentolados y toques de eucalipto fresco, tomillo, piedra fría, suaves notas minerales que se funden con el cacao y los cueros nuevos. Notable entrada en boca con una astringencia intensa pero elegante y jugosa, vibrante recorrido de buen cuerpo y buen nervio, muy buena acidez, fruta negra en compota muy sabrosa que llena toda la boca, especiado y unas notas balsámicas embriagantes, buena estructura con una sedosa textura, buen volumen y notable persistencia. Final bien largo, postgusto de fruta negra madura y retronasal muy ahumado.

    January 12, 2014 - Excellent, but quite heavy. Has black, dark fruits. Great nose and sticks to the glass like caramel.

    June 20, 2012 - Pago de los Capellanes "El Picón" vertical tasting (Monvinic (Barcelona)): Visually, this 2004 is darker than its predecessors, a brighter color, more texture and a red trim. Looks like much younger. The palette of aromas on the nose is excellent, with floral notes like violet, red berries and ripe cassis, minerality is already noticiable on nose. After a while it gains mouch more intensity and complexity with underbrush, leather, menthol and more balsamic aromas. On palate this 2004 is a young beast, keeps gaining "weight" with time. High acidity and firm tannins but with an excellent balance that makes it so enjoyable to taste, although still requires a couple of years to round the tannins. It is complex and well structured, slightly astringent and with some wood still present. Remarkable fruit intensity, which is somewhat more mature than in other vintages (except maybe the 2003), underbrush, elegant and creamy, toasted flavours and a exceptionally very long finish made of black fruit, chocolate and incense. Quite complexity here. According to the property 2004 is by far the best vintage, although at this moment I enjoyed 2003 a bit more as this one needs 2-3 more years (94-95).
