Brilliant ruby. A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes spice-accented red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, pipe tobacco and vanilla, and violet and mineral accents emerge as the wine stretches out. Palate-staining blackberry, cherry-vanilla, cassis, fruitcake, mocha and candied licorice flavors show superb depth and clarity while hints of floral pastilles and Moroccan spices add complexity. Gains weight with air, with no loss of energy, showing powerful, spicy thrust on a strikingly long, gently tannic and floral-driven finish. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2021)

Sipping Fine Wine

Deep Ruby with an elegant bouquet of sweet berry fruits, subtle spice with earthy tones, a traditional Rioja. On the palate, the wine was silky smooth with layers of flavors, berry/cherry, tobacco, smoky cedar, dark fruit, vanilla spice, very well balanced with fine tannins and a clean structure ending with a nice long finish. Delicious!  Still great with room to run. This wine shows potential aging well beyond next decade!

This was voted WOTN. It’s a real crowd pleaser in the best possible way. Very attractive nose and intense flavours with a plush mouthfeel. Dark berries, figs, baking spices, coconut. Really tasty and well done.
