Dense almost syrupy this brooding red is powerful and distinctive offering currant blackberry anise espresso and hoisin flavors supported by chewy tannins. Yet the finish is spicy and floral almost delicate. Best from 2012 through 2020. 900 cases imported. -TM

Early on it displays mild heat and jamminess but with airing everything settles and ultimately this old-vines Tempranillo from the lauded winemaker Mariano Garcia excels. The palate is rich minerally and meaty with slightly syrupy black fruit flavors molasses and chocolate. Chewy tannic and pure on the finish with hints of herbs and lemon peel. Drink now through 2013. - M.S.

The more serious 2005 Vinas Viejas spent 36 months in French and American oak. It has a similar roasted character but considerably more complexity in its aromas of mineral damp earth violets black cherry and blueberry. Dense and rich on the palate with excellent depth and loads of savory fruit and with the oak totally integrated it will evolve for 2-3 years and deliver prime drinking from 2012 to 2020. -Jay Miller

Lots of dark fruit on the palate as well along with notes of black pepper and smoky vanilla. Becomes brighter with air picking up a black raspberry quality and showing very good concentration. On the modern side but there's also good tension here. Finishes sweet broad and long-and drinking very well now. -Josh Raynolds

The nose exhibits espresso roast and scorched earth followed by milk chocolate and cinnamon with underlying black fruits. The aroma profile follows through to the palate showcasing more of the black fruit base while a distinct presence of minerality appears on the finish along with fine-grained chalky tannins reminiscent of baker's cocoa. Give this a year or so and drink for the following 7-8.
