It shows bright and clean; deep red cherry color and garnet on the border. Intense and elegant stream of aromas first showing fruits such as dried prunes, cherries and liquorice. Then spicy notes like black pepper, cloves and nutmeg arise followed by reminiscences of tobacco leaves, all over a fragrant background of tofe and smoky hints. On the palate it is gentle, velvety, and voluminous. Meaty, rounded full bodied and unctuous. Rounded feeling in the mouth. Ripe with a long and lingering finish. Very polished tannins with highly spicy aftertaste.

A dark, smoky, charred nose is chocolaty and dense, with black-fruit notes but also a hint of chimney. A tight palate is pulling and tannic, while blackberry flavors come with notes of black coffee, chocolate and burnt toast. A narrow tannic finish suggests that this Reserva should improve over time; drink through 2030.

Smoky and tarry notes frame a core of blackberry, licorice and mineral in this firm red. Muscular tannins are well-integrated, while balsamic acidity adds a spicy accent. A bit austere, but shows concentration. Best from 2021 through 2031. 4,750 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
