90 POINTS VINOUS
“Inky ruby. Spicy dark berries and cherry on the nose, complicated by white pepper, floral and vanilla notes. Smooth and open-knit, offering sweet blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. In a plush, fruity, highly appealing style, with no obvious tannins and a long, blue fruit-dominated finish.”
This riper version of Tempranillo shows black cherries and blueberries, along with sandalwood and sawdust from American oak. The finish reflects its warm region origins with some raisins and dusty earth lingering on the palate.
