"(100% tempranillo, from vines that are over 60 years old; aged in new French oak): Opaque purple. Smoky cherry and blackberry preserve aromas and flavors, complicated by a suggestion of vanilla and building smokiness. Lush and creamy but firmed by zesty acidity. Vanilla and cola notes dominate the broad, persistent finish, which shows excellent clarity and persistence."
