"Taste: Holy cow – you’ve never smelled a wine like this. It’s like dessert on the nose with huge notes of toasty vanilla oak, chocolate, cigar smoke and molten licorice. The wine soars across your palate with immense complexity mingling chocolate, earth, and licorice gumdrops. It’s massively structured, intense and concentrated with big, grainy tannins perfectly melded to a mineral component, cigar smoke, toffee and earthy fruit. The finish goes on and on for 2-3 minutes with excellent focus and concentration. Magnificent. Cameron Confidential: Another gem from winemaker John. I remember initially tasting the wine with COO Doug and him commenting “best Spanish wine I have ever tasted”. I have to agree. In fact, I think it is one of the best wines we have ever offered if not the best. The producer is a co-op with over 450 hectares of fruit in production and this wine is the best they have to offer. It has tremendous class and purity and has been rewarded with numerous best of show and gold medals across Europe. The wine is only made in exceptional vintages and has not been produced since the 2000 vintage. This wine has my highest recommendation. " Best 2009-2024
