($55; from very low-yielding tempranillo vines between 25 and 75 years of age) Good bright ruby-red. Dee p aromas of black raspberry, mocha, leather and tobacco. At once deeply sweet and penetrating, with lovely lift in the middle palate. Highly concentrated flavors of briary berries, minerals, chocolate and tar. Solidly structured, extremely young wine with strong aging potential. Finishes with molar-coating tannins and terrific persistence. (Fine Estates From Spain Dedham MA)
Tobacco and cedar on the nose. This is a blackberry fruit bomb just starting to develop complexity. The wood and tannins are still pronounced. Still a young wine and needs time in the bottle.
