($60; a blend of 40% carinena, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 10% garnacha and 5% syrah) Ruby-red. Explosively ripe aromas of plum, currant, spicecake, cedar, minerals and violet. Sweet, lush and pliant on entry, then tighter and penetrating in the middle and firmly tannic on the back. There's creamy black fruit flavor and very good volume here but the wine is distinctly clenched today owing to its strong acidity. I'd lay this down for a couple of years.
