Beefy stuff for a young wine with only four months of oak aging. Still, there's bacon and generous black-fruit aromas followed by black cherry, plum, tobacco and pepper flavors. It's full, round and mouthfilling, with chocolate, coffee and a hint of herbs on the finish. Nice and complete. A no-complaints type of Tempranillo.
