“The nose is straight, quite aromatic and ever changing in the glass, developing nuances as time passes and clearly marked by the special Garnacha Tintorera they have, with that stony/ mineral sensation providing hints of flint stone and silex. There are fine-grained, dusty tannins and good balance, but there is also power. This feels more elegant than previous vintages.”
