This is nicely done given that 2008 was a subpar year throughout Spain. The bouquet deals full berry and cherry aromas with notes of exotic spices and perfume. It feels thick and creamy but polished, with deep blackberry and cassis flavors. Jammy almost to the point of raisiny, but with such deep fruit it works.
