A classically styled nose with old-school oak played into ripe red plums. Lots of spice and hints of fresh leather starting to build. The palate delivers smooth chocolate and dark berries with a swathe of toasted baking spices.

The more classical 2012 Gran Reserva has aromas of roasted sunflower and sesame seeds, a diesel-like mineral touch and jammy fruit. The palate is mostly about its time in oak, revealing plenty of wood flavors and a dry texture with plenty of granular, powdery tannins. One that needs food. Ready now. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2015.

Charred aromas of burnt wood, black coffee and tire rubber give way to smoky fruit. This is a tannic, tough Tempranillo, one that's pinched in feel. Charred blackberry flavors remain dark on a chewy tannic finish.
