This Spanish cabernet sauvignon shows a good mix of ripe varietal fruit, oak influence, and savoury, dusty, Old-World character. Aromas are of ripe raspberry and dark cherry, cassis, cedar, sage, dusty,old leather, dark chocolate, tobacco, and earth. The palate shows similar flavours but with a sense of iron and more dark chocolate. The acidity is nicely balanced, though the tannins aren't the smoothest. The finish is fairly long. This could age another year or two to soften the tannins, though it might lose some of its fruit. It would probably be best to drink sooner than later, paired with some venison, roast beef, or hard cheeses. Tasted Nov. 2016.
