This is sleek and racy with a polish and beauty that is incredible. Full body, ultra-fine tannins that touch you at the beginning and take you down to a gorgeous depth of fruit. Super. A great single vineyard wine. Drink... This is sleek and racy with a polish and beauty that is incredible.

The 2016 Viña del Olivo has to be one of the finest recent vintages of this wine. It's powerful and elegant and has great balance and a lively palate, with focused flavors, great purity and integrated oak. It's very young... The 2016 Viña del Olivo has to be one of the finest recent vintages of this wine. It's powerful and elegant and has great balance and a lively palate, with focused flavors, great purity and integrated oak. It's very young and seems to have all the ingredients for a long development in bottle. It's tasty, long, very pure and is salty rather than sweet. - Luis Gutiérrez

(malo in new French oak barrels and aging for 17 months in new French, American and Hungarian oak) Youthful purple. Powerful, deeply perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry liqueur, potpourri and incense, along with oak spice, vanilla and woodsmoke nuances. Sweet and palate-coating, offering densely packed but vibrant black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and floral pastille flavors energized by a core of juicy acidity and a suggestion of exotic spices. Finishes sweet and impressively long, showing outstanding clarity and youthful tannins that add solid grip to the sappy, lingering fruit. -- Josh Raynolds

Power and refinement meet in this red. Black cherry and red currant flavors are fresh and lively, backed by cocoa, tobacco and licorice notes. Fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity give this energy and focus. Detailed... Power and refinement meet in this red. Black cherry and red currant flavors are fresh and lively, backed by cocoa, tobacco and licorice notes. Fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity give this energy and focus. Detailed and graceful.
