Very rustic in nature, which one would expect from a Gran Reserva 14 yrs in age, but still very youthful.  Score: 89/100

Tasting Note: Medium bright ruby in colour with good acidity, a medium intense nose, fine tannin & a long length on the finish. Wine features dried cherry & cranberry, Allspice, Star Anise, leather, cedar, oak resin, vanilla and cigar box on the nose.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: Love the bottle

Pairings: Drink this now or in 10 yrs. on its own or pair it with Pisto Manchego.
