91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2013

(this 100% tinta de toro wine went through malo in new French oak and then spent six months in another set of new barrels):  Bright purple.  Intense dark berry aromas are complemented by potpourri, cola and vanillin oak.  Broad, palate-coating blackberry and blueberry flavors become livelier with air and show an energetic spiciness.  Finishes with very good clarity and juicy persistence, the cola and spice notes repeating.
