Deep, dark ruby red color. The nose is very charming and complex with waves of plum, blackberry and cherry with accents of anise, allspice, earth, vanilla, and toasted oak. The palate is in agreement with the nose delivering ripe and semi-tart fruit with a juicy core flanked by spice, earth, and oak. Simply beautiful with ideal balance, great length, and supple tannins. Great Value

The 2008 Reserva seems like a much more serious wine, with fresh notes of cherries, some leather and pepper and a tight palate that reveals good balance, purity of flavors and good length. It should age well, as it has good balance. Drink 2014-2019.
