(2009 Vintage) The palate is well balanced and elegant, with layers of ripe fruit and fine supportive tannins. Shows richness and complexity, with a long and persistent finish.
(2009 Vintage) The 2009 RESERVA is lovely, refined, suave and elegant, with a soft, caressing texture and burst of flavor lingering on the finish. Everything seems rather well integrated here, hardly a hair out of place, although it does need a little time to integrate the oak just a bit better. There is steel underneath, even if it opens with a bit of a creamy texture. With air, it shows off its structure and intensity, the tannins providing some grip on the finish.
