Beautiful, very dark ruby red color with a soft mahogany rim. Exquisite aroma, reminiscent of bilberry and cherry jam, enhanced by toasted notes acquired through aging in oak. The palate reveals an extraordinary dimension, with soft, juicy tannins that hold promise for the wine's future evolution.
"Saturated ruby. Musky aromas of cherry compote, plum and dark chocolate, with vanilla and tobacco topnotes. Sweet, pliant and deep, offering intense dark berry and floral flavors brightened and sharpened by cracked pepper and smoky minerals. Finishes long and sweet but focused, with a hint of licorice and slow-mounting, velvety tannins. This is the most successful bottling of this iconic Spanish wine I've had in many years."
International Wine Cellar
"One of Spain's most character-packed wines, this vintage of
Mas La Plana deals bacon, berry and earthy aromas in
front of a weighty, fairly tannic palate. Becoming richer
and riper as it unfolds, this is full of prune, plum and
earthy stewed-berry flavors. It gets better and shows
more complexity with air. Drink now–2018."
