Courtney scored this wine: 92/100

Surprising aroma of herbs - mint, oregano, thyme, with a background of dried prune and dark chocolate. Very interesting.

WOW! Rich and complex. Cocoa, mint, dark cherry-fig-blackberry, eucalyptus, pepper and grippy tannin, caramel. Expensive but delivers - just disappointed its not in my everyday budget. Would make a fantastic gift for a wine lover.

Very intense and savoury with tons of leather and spicy black peppercorn. But when sipped, still surprisingly very fresh with cherry, blackberry but with a background of pepper and rose. Very grippy tannins.

Dried fruit (dates and prune) with a background of tar and black peppercorn. A savoury, chewy wine. Interesting but hard to pair with food.

Thank you Jane Staples! Love a Spanish bubbly. Deep pink but still fresh as a cava, there are notes of wild strawberry, dried apricot, almond. great for salmon.
