Of all the excellent Genium 2010s, this is the only one that's a bit stalky on the nose. It's also rubbery smelling, with tight-grained oak scents and earth notes. Hard, tannic and without much cushion, this Garnacha-led blend tastes earthy, stalky and of high-toned plum and currant with lemony oak. A bold, tannic finish says this will last through about 2024.
