($80; from 60-year-old tempranillo vines; P.S. stands for pagos seleccionados) Saturated dark ruby to the rim. Superripe aromas show a slightly porty quality: kirsch, black raspberry, clove and cough medicine. Then hugely sweet and rich, with firm acidity and solid mineral backbone giving vibrancy and definition to the black raspberry and espresso flavors. I picked up an intriguing suggestion of very old Calvados. Very long and firm on the aftertaste. Mariano Garcia, formerly winemaker at Vega Sicilia and the owner of Bodegas Mauro, is heavily involved in this new venture. (European Cellars, Charlotte, NC)
