    Deep red. The nose shows darker fruit tones than the 2001 Reserva, with cherry preserve and dark berry aromas complicated by exotic oak spice. Dense and lush, with a chewy quality to the sweet flavors of cherry, plum and dark chocolate. Rich, broad and supple through the sweet, long, ripely tannic finish, with a note of sexy oak emerging. Undeniably delicious; fans of toasty, oaky wines will likely rate this even higher.
