Aged in French oak for 36 months and then in bottle for another 36 months(!) this ravishing Gran Reserva is composed primarily of Tempranillo with a healthy dose of Cabernet Sauvignon. Perfumed notes of red cherry, forest floor, anise, tobacco, violet and loamy minerals rise from the glass. On the palate, red berry fruits, cedar, vanilla and exotic spice flavors are sheathed in finely-integrated tannins. It finishes with resounding complexity and will offer pleasurable drinking over the next decade.

"Tar and sanguine notes frame the plum, licorice and mineral flavors in this savory red, which has good density, with firm tannins and balsamic acidity providing solid structure. Spice and smoke details linger on the finish."
