Deep cherry in color with a vivacious violet rim, the wine has clean aromas of ripe black fruit, English toffee and dark chocolate. On the palate it is complex and meaty with notes of ripe berries, toasted malt and sweet tobacco. A wine with surprising expressiveness that is full of character
and personality, it has natural elegance and great propensity for long bottle aging.
"The 2007 El Pison is medium purple in color with a superb, already complex nose of smoke, liquid mineral, crushed stone, lavender, balsamic, and black cherry. This leads to a beautifully proportioned, elegant, satin-textured wine with plush fruit, plenty of structure, and a lengthy, seamless finish. It can be approached now although it is still evolving and should drink well through 2027. Senor Lopez de Lacalle’s description of the 2007 is 'delicate, pure, and a wine of finesse.'"
