(2011 Vintage) Dense purple with opaque center. Multilayered fruit bouquet of prunes and red wine figs, underlaid with gingerbread and chocolate cherry, radiating classy acting and wonderful warmth. Round tannins and plum jelly-like sweetness in the flattering palate with subtle cedar spice and dried fruit again much in the velvety center, Tempranillo wealth and Fernandez-classical perfection, caramelized walnuts in a long lingering finish.
