James Suckling 94
This is an impressive Gran Reserva. It opens with cinnamon, five spice, iodine, vanilla, resin, elderberries, cherry liqueur, blackberries and black raspberries. The palate is plush, full-bodied and very concentrated, but theres enough depth of field to the tannins to take on the immense, dark-fruit flavors. Some cutting acidity drives this home.

Tasting notes: Deep cherry-red with violet hues. Intense aromas of red fruits and fine wood. Elegant and well balanced in the mouth.
Made from a selection of grapes coming from vines with an average of 20 to 25 years. Fermentation of destalked grapes in stainless steel tanks. Maceration for 3 weeks with frequent pumping-over in order to achieve a good extraction.
In American and French oak barrels for 24 months, followed by 36 months in bottle.
Roasted meat, lamb and cured cheeses.
