    April 20, 2019 - Popped and poured. Fleshy black fruit that was bright to start, but less interesting 30 minutes later.

    March 5, 2016 - Drinking nice. Needs hours of air time still. The wine has settled down and starting to have more resounding darker and creamier notes.

    September 7, 2014 - Bought on release. My last bottle. Popped and poured at the Jets opener. Just catching up on notes. Has developed extremely well. very meaty, red fruit, dark cherry, earthy and herbal. I do not know whether cellaring this myself was a good "investment" but at least I knew the provenance and was very happy with the result.

    December 13, 2013 - A stunning, exemplary, majestic kind of wine. Perfectly balanced, elegant, strong, extracted powerhouse with M+++ tannin and M++ acids building a fabulous structure with the marvellous fruit. Not yet in its stride.

    Dark red with small sign of beginning maturity.
    Nose is strong and filled the living room when decanted (2.5 hrs). Elegant fruit with some maturity shining through. Very clear aromas of newly printed newspaper, anise seeds, red berries, sumi ink and a hint of earth.
    On the palate, it is a thorough breed. A stallion made for racing, not at all a Belgian Blue. Very very detailed and precise in the mouth, tannins dressing up your gums, fruit and acid playing Rachmaninoff on four hands.
    Missing things: complexity and layers. Tannins mellowed over the course of the dinner, but the wine remained the same. No surprises.
    We love this powerful expression of Tempranillo and the really really low yields make this a very beautiful wine, indeed.
    Wife: 94p also.
    Wine is far from over the hill (CT drink index says: 2006-11).
    At La Rochelle Akasaka, brilliantly sensitive French cuisine.
