91 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2006
($40; a blend of tempranillo, grenache and souzao) Deep ruby. A complex bouquet of blackberry jam, candied licorice, cured tobacco, fudge and espresso. Very sweet and lush, with a confectionery tone to the dark berry flavors and a suave, velvety texture. Firms up on the finish but maintains impressive sweetness. This would compare nicely to most new-wave Spanish wines, but here the oak is more successfully integrated here than in many newfangled Iberian examples.
