Expert Reviews

Freakishly deep in colour; I am certain as I sit here in front of the bottle that I have never tasted a tempranillo as full-bodied as this, nor one with such raw power. Quite simply needs a nappy change or two (ie fining) and 10 years before an accurate judgement can be made. Rating 89 - Drink by 2043 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2015)
