  • Drank as a ‘Rioja tasting’ accompanied by a 2009 Erudito and a 2011 CVNE imperial Reserve.

    Drank both without food and with Spanish meatballs in a paprika-tomato sauce.

    This is in a brilliant place right now. Beautiful cherry notes with balsamic and mint on the nose giving way to a soft and plush palate complete with hints of anise and soaked black leather. While not particularly racy, this delivered with a round mouthfeel and mild acidity that enabled an extremely pleasant balance of red fruit and spice to tempt the palate.

    This was a unanimous wine of the night and is in a great place right now. It has the guts to continue several years without hesitation however it will not disappoint should your patience falter.

  • Mycket fräsch doft av mörka och röda bär, vanilj, örter, läder
    Smak går i samma spår, mörka och röda bär, men också pigga syror, mjuka tanniner, vanilj och lite läder, smaken stannar kvar i gommen hyfsat länge men skulle vilja ha den lite längre. Elegant vin men skulle vilja ha lite mer av allt, dock väldigt bra och fint.

  • Fantastiskt vin med god doft och smak. Mjuka tanniner som smekte gommen och varade länge i munnen. Säkert på sin peak nu men varar säkert ca 5 år till.

  • Second bottle from case; I opened the 1st one 3 years ago, but that was too soon (no note posted then). Bright ruby colour; wonderful aroma of cherries and toast. Decanted for 3 hours, tasting occasionally. (For me the 2 hour mark was the "sweet spot", but it drank well all evening.) Mouth-filling flavours of tart cherries over gently sweet oak and vanilla. Very welcoming. Quite vibrant acidity, with a touch of balsamic, which lingers. Tannins are fairly well subdued. Long, lingering finish. An enjoyable wine.
