  • Color rojo granatoso, ribete cereza picota, capa alta, suave lágrima ligeramente tintada. En nariz muestra un elegante abanico de aromas agradables con abundante fruta roja en compota con frambuesas y fresas en compota, jarabe de grosellas rojas, tostados muy suaves, punzantes especias en granos con pimienta roja y blanca, mentolados frescos con toques de anís estrellado algo seco, toque de mineralidad fresca que aligera un conjunto que parece una crema de ingredientes maduros y de compotas. Buena entrada en boca con cierta carnosidad y una astringencia marcada pero ligeramente dulzona, agradable en su recorrido con una fruta roja acompotada, mentolados frescos, anís y toque de clavo fresco, toque de fruta aún no completamente integrada y un tanino bien vivo que le da fuerza al conjunto, agradable, intenso, buen volumen, suave carnosidad, sabroso, buena persistencia. Final bien largo, postgusto de fruta roja y retronasal especiado.
    Buena evolución dando un resultado agradable pero sin llegar a sorprender. Posiblemente algo más de guarda le irá de maravilla.

  • Strong notes of earth and some blackberry / cassis on the nose. Well formed in the mouth. Overall, a balanced wine with some character.

  • In a much better place than the last bottle I had about a year ago. That one was very disjointed and a mess, making me wonder what happened to this brand. I have enjoyed the label for several vintages now and this bottle was back on par with the quality/style I expect. Decent fruit, texture and finish. Satisfying.

  • Muddled and past its prime (if it ever was), undefined even after decanting and time to breath. Nose was tawny, overripe, like a port. Maybe the bottle was defective but I'm afraid not. It came highly reviewed (WS?) - I paid $17-18 and held it in my cellar a few years for a special occasion.
