92 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2008

($30; based on 70% tempranillo) Deep red. Highly fragrant, Bordeaux-like bouquet of red berries, smoky minerals, flowers and camphor. Supple red and dark berry flavors stain the palate and are given spine by juicy minerality. The fruit expands on the finish, which is strikingly sweet, broad and persistent. This smokes pretty much any Bordeaux that I can think of for close to this price.
