I agree with John. It starts nice and smooth, and grows over time to develop a complex finish. Another great value from Spain!

There is just so much to like about Bierzo's signature grape, and this offering is a very fine example, with gorgeously fragrant dark fruit and purple flower aromas, notes of violet, blackcurrant, cherry, vanilla, graphite, black pepper, spice, and oak, with a slight buttery touch, and exceptional length. What truly stands out, though, is how delicately balanced it is, the wood supporting the fruit without overwhelming it, the tannins impressive but not obtrusive, the richness offset by those lifted floral elements, allowing it to seem fresh and vibrant alongside its depth and profundity.
