Natalie's Score: 89/100

Dry and mature, at peak right now. This Spanish red wine is all bones as the flesh has rescinded to the background. This makes it a contemplative wine for those who enjoy good acidity for food, and more earthy, leather, dusty aromas rather than ripe fruit. Pair with rack of lamb.
