Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sep/Oct 06
($35; a special 200-case cuvee made for the U.S. importer; 45% cabernet sauvignon, 25% tempranillo and 15% each of syrah and merlot) Saturated ruby. Dense, smoky, powerful scents of cherry liqueur, cured meat, minerals and toasty oak. Pliant and chewy on the palate, with sweet cassis and blackberry flavors accented by baking spices and fresh rose. Serious tannins emerge on the finish, suggesting that this needs some cellar time. (Grapes of Spain, Lorton, VA) 90(+?) points "
