In keeping with the first vintage from 2001 they have managed to further improve thanks to the superb year and a developing erudition in concept and production. It has gone from being a designer wine to being a wine of high quality.
Incredible strength in aroma and flavor expressed with elegance and harmony. The fruit prevails, exultantly at that, demonstrating its ripeness, saturated with minerality, with toasted notes of almonds and a hint of wood. With time, its relationship with the palate improves, evolving… reconciling itself. It calls attention to the noble bitter flavor, reminiscent of almond, even turrón, thanks to its sweetness, demonstrating distinguished tannins at the same time. Full-bodied and meaty.
