($147; 90% tempranillo and 10% graciano) Inky purple. Explosively aromatic nose presents sexy aromas of spicy red berries, cherry-cola, vanilla, graphite, incense and floral oils. Broad and sappy, with deep blackberry and cherry compote flavors, supple tannins and a big jolt of vanillin oak on the back end. Yes, this is firmly in the modern school, but the depth of fruit is excellent, and I'll bet on the oak character being absorbed by the wine's sheer volume in a few years time. Finishes sweet, with supple tannins and clinging black raspberry and blueberry preserve flavors. (Pasternak Wine Imports, Greenwich, CT)
