Broken cork- never a good start…. unless the wine is unharmed and is as good as this one. Funky Tempranillo nose of earth, black cherries and garigue. Full power attack of aged leather, tobacco, black berries and dark cherry jam. Very balanced with some tight tannins and sharp acidity. Mid palate shows some real stuffing, sour cherry with leather and black brooding fruits. The finish is long and the tannins continue to caress. This wine is still very young and will age gracefully, all the pieces are in place. 93 points from me which differs considerably from one pro who gave it 90 and my peers only managed 87 points. I’m sticking with my guns and searching for more. At $15 per bottle you can’t go wrong- 5 stars for sure and another winner in the books. 2015-2025 Salut….
