One of the best expressions of Duero Tempranillo. Soft and balanced wine with integrated tannins. Chocolate and cigar box dominate the palate with aromatics of dark fruit and red plums.

Deep ruby red. Layered nose with dark fruits and spices. Notes of blackberries, anise, dark cocoa, earth and herbs. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Very dark palate with quite a bit of dark fruits. Layers of dark cocoa and dark berries, both red and black. Solid acidity and a touch dry in the finish. Long finish. Drink till 2027. (92+)

Closest to the vine contest - very interesting being from 40 yr old vines. Soft in the mouth with light coco tints and concentrated raspberry

Needs time. A little too primary yet. But will likely go wonderful places.
