The 2005 Finca Nueva Reserva has appealing notes of clove, fennel seed, leather and cherry. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated to aged wine, with food friendly acidity, refined tannins (decant for 1 hour) and a long finish. It is food friendly or can be enjoyed in a party setting; drink now - till 2018+. My impression: NICE, 89 pts – recommended. Tasted April/13.

I liked the classic style from this producer. Drying on the finish, like a desert.
