93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2008
($99; a blend of garnacha, cabernet sauvignon, syrah and carinena) Opaque violet. A head-spinning bouquet of ripe blackcurrant, cherry liqueur, cola, candied plum, mineral and floral scents, along with a suave undercurrent of spicy oak. Deeply concentrated dark berry and cherry preserve flavors are impressively powerful and ripe, but improbably fresh too. Chewy tannins build on the finish but are overwhelmed by the intense, powerful fruit. This is a beast right now and in need of at least seven to ten more years in a cool cellar, maybe more. Then serve it with the richest red meat dish you can come up with. (Europvin USA, Van Nuys, CA; the Manyetes bottling is imported by Boutique Wine Collection, Philadelphia, PA)
