Our Comments This is the flagship wine from this Bodegas, with only 1,000 bottles produced.  Lile previous vintages it is excellent.  Very fruity, good body, and long finish. Very limited production from the best fruit to maintain quality. This wine will continue to improve for a number of years. To enjoy this wine at its best now, do take the time to decant and allow it to stand for a while before drinking, although it can be served straight from the bottle at room temperature.
