Very deep red cherry color. Rich and muscular, with exotic roasted
spice and blueberry confiture notes followed by racy graphite and
espresso. The ripe finish of chocolate and spice is well-proportioned.
Pair with paella, pasta, vegetables, mushroom, stewed meat, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, short or medium cheeses.
"Inky purple. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of black raspberry and cherry, with pipe tobacco and floral nuances building with air. Fleshy, supple and sweet, offering bright red and dark berry flavors and a smoky, spicy quality. Fine-grained tannins help shape the a long, smoky finish. This wine reminded me a lot of a newfangled Right Bank Bordeaux."

Thinner than reserva tempranillos I generally drink, but a great qpr.
