Aaron:  This features a dark smell of toasted chocolate but unfortunately the flavor is too bitter for me.  there’s tons of fruit, it’s just under ripe and dominated by cranberry and young cherry.  The long lasting flavor features heavy tannins and a sharp finished – it’s definitely Spanish.  Light pepper and a bit too much chalk means this needs to age a while longer.  88 points

Teri: Deep ruby color and great flavor. Dark cherry flavor and spice with chocolate on the finish. Full body, smooth, and would hold up to hearty meals. 89 points. Great pick!
