Black in color, rich and lush, this is a broodingly stunning Tempranillo, with smoke, tar, blueberry and black currant flavors that are rounded out by notes of earthy coffee and minerality. It's a big boy in every way; so lay this bottle down for a few years, and it should only get more intensely interesting.
