Age is beginning to show up on this gran reserva. It's a little raisiny and Sherried on the nose, while the palate is wiry but not exactly thin, with dry raspberry, pie cherry and plum skin flavors. Baked bean, caramel, vanilla and tobacco all play big roles on the finish, which is scouring and tight. Drink now; it's probably not going to improve with further age.
