(2006 Vintage) Deep, bright ruby. Sexy aromas of currant, coffee, bitter chocolate, minerals and graphite. Lusher and sweeter than the Monteviejo, with a finer-grained texture and insidious penetrating flavor intensity without undue weight. This very suave and rich wine saturates the palate with blackberry and raspberry fruit. Finishes with superb lift-and tannins that coat the front teeth. A beauty.
