Natalie's Score: 90/100

Lovely mature aromas with leather, cigar, violets and dried plums. Full-bodied and ultra-supple. Drink now rather than age further. See what a mature wine tastes like as it’s rare thing these days in stores or restaurants. Delights from the get-go.

Tempranillo food pairings: chili verde, short ribs, sharp cheddar, lamb, turkey.

The Gran Reserva is sourced from 50-year-old vines and exhibits very fine red and black cherry perfume on the nose with a hint of oak spice. It is beautifully balanced on the palate with refined flavors and mouth feel and nicely integrated oak, earth and savory notes. Elegant and refined, reminiscent of good Burgundy. Score: 93.
