The roble in the name indicates oak aging, but maybe this wine could have done without that oak, because the aromas and flavors are pickled and funky. Beyond that, there's candied cherry fruit and some beet flavor, while the feel, tannins and texture all seem to be in place. Simply stated, the oak on this wine hinders rather than helps.
