A wealth of ripe dark plums and cherries on offer here with earthy nuances, too. The palate has a very succulent, juicy and fresh feel with plenty of very juicy, rich and succulent fruit to close. Drink now.

Vivid ruby-red. Oak-spiced red fruit aromas are complicated by suggestions of cured tobacco and roasted coffee, and a peppery nuance adds lift. Sweet and supple on the palate, offering sweet red fruit and vanilla flavors and a touch of smokiness. Deepens with air, picking up a bitter chocolate quality that builds on the long, gently tannic finish. I like the blend of traditional and modern qualities here.

A deep nose with solid berry aromas, oak and spice is what you'd expect from a reserva from this reliable bodega. Full tannins make for a rubbing mouthfeel, while this tastes of berry fruit and distant chocolate. Savory flavors take over on a heavy, tannic finish. Drink through 2024.
