It is muscular with an incredible purity tasting like dark fruits and wet earth. Full body, with hints of charcoal and dark tea to keep it balanced.
"This is a really beautiful old-vine red with blackberry, black olive and bark character. It's full and layered, yet tight and intense. Such great length. From vineyards planted 1910 in Consulta." - James Suckling, 95 points
