A huge wine that's tannic as nails but so aromatic and flavor packed. Toasted oak, mint, cola, maple, marzipan work the potent nose, while the saturated palate thumps along with massive black-fruit flavors and coffee, fudge and light herb accents. This is one of the most powerful wines from Spain or anywhere. Drink or hold.
