    ($100; 80% tempranillo, 15% garnacha and 10% mazuelo and graciano) Amber-edged, fading red. Compelling bouquet of dried red fruits, rose, lavender, anise and gingerbread. Deep, velvety red fruit flavors are surprisingly lithe, with candied floral and licorice qualities contributing complexity. Gains sweetness with air and finishes long, with strong mineral and floral qualities. For this much complexity in an aged Burgundy, you'd likely pay twice as much.

    Proceeding to the Bosconia vineyard in El Boseque, the 1991 Vina Bosconia Gran Reserva spent ten years in barrel and has a lucid deep ruby core with a tawny rim. It is endowed with a sensual bouquet with red cherry, fresh fig, cola and a touch of thyme. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth, velvety texture, perfect acidity and lovely, natural peppery dark cherry fruit laced with balsamic and white pepper. This is simply divine. Drink now-2020+

    This mature red shows a light brick color, with delicate aromas of spice, dried fruit and rose. Supple and still lively, offering flavors of dried berry, tea, vanilla and spice. This whispers rather than shouts, but has distinctive character. For fans of the traditional style.

    Light bricky garnet. Aromatic nose with asian five spice, polished cedar wood and light oxidative notes. Elegant and stylish on the palate with fragrant red flowers and sweet cherry fruit. Lovely.

    Sublte but layered aroma. Approachable with several flavor profiles of earth, wood chips and hints of fruit. Medium finish.
