    October 2, 2019 - This had a lovely sweet vanilla nose, caramel, fruit and the palate was delicious and had a complex finish of sweet fruit, round tannins and a depth that went on for some time. Drank this alongside the CVNE 2014 Reserva and this was class. This has years ahead of it. 92

    September 7, 2019 - Nez fermé et bouche un peu rustique au depart. Mais avec l aeration, le nez devient de plus en plus expressif et complexe. Meme chose en bouche, les tanins deviennent soyeux, atteint une belle rondeur. En final, il est fort agréable. Vin qui a besoin d un séjour en carafe.

    September 7, 2019 - WOTN for spanish wine and food in darien
    a nose of burgundian quality with just enough fruit and backbone to form an integrated delicious pleasure
    a touch of oak and evolved fruit that changed over the evening
    went well with the goat cheese in tomato sauce appetizer, the paella later in the evening and on it's own

    August 19, 2019 - Less impressive than what I was expecting (after thoroughly enjoying this back in 2015): the notes of wet forest, mushroom, and dirt are still there, but complexity and tertiary notes were minimal over 3+ hours of tasting, including 2 hours of decanting. It did benefit from air though.

    August 9, 2019 - Lovely. Mature, fully integrated tannins and oak. Round and supple on the palate with spice box, herbs and toast underpinning the cassis and red fruit. Great value.
