90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011

(100% tempranillo):  Deep ruby.  Aromas of ripe cherry, cassis, blackberry and dark chocolate, with a touch of cola.  Lush, layered and focused, with a creamy texture and hefty dark fruit flavors.  Shows the ripeness of the year but there's good energy here too.  Finishes with smooth tannins, a hint of licorice and very good length.  I'll bet that this will be even better in a couple years but it's approachable now.
