"Ripe black-fruit aromas are cuddly and reflect the warm conditions of 2012. Tight and ribbed on the palate, this has the structure to handle blackberry, chocolate and peppery spice flavors without seeming overripe or jammy. A saturated finish benefits from the right amount of acidity. Drink through 2023."

"Sexy nose of ripe black fruit, red flowers and mineral undertones. Hints of chocolate, too – not to mention toasted oak. Full body, soft tannins and fresh acidity that leads to a herbal and spicy finish. Pure mencía. Balanced. Drinkable now but better in 2018."
