Deep cherry-red with violet hues. Intense aromas of red fruits and fine wood. Elegant and well balanced in the mouth.
Earth and dark chocolate notes frame plum pudding and licorice flavors in this plump red. Features light, firm tannins and balsamic acidity. A bit clumsy, but lively. Drink now through 2014. 7,000 cases made.
The 2005 Gran Reserva is a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano: a selection of the best grapes from 20- to 25-year-old vines that is then aged in American and French oak for 24 months. It has an intense minty nose of blackberry, smoke and grilled meats that is well-defined, but surprisingly taut considering the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with a tarry, leathery entry. The tannins are fine and linear, the finish classic in style with a dash of white pepper and tar. This is a very well-made Gran Reserva drinking beautifully now, but certainly it has the substance to keep. Drink now-2022.
