“From a bodega that we believe actually produced its very first vintage in 1973, this wine was showing surprisingly well and relatively youthfully for a 40-year-old red! Could it have something to do with the fact that legendary ex-Cune winemaker Ezequiel "El Brujo" Hernandez made this wine? Hmmm....could be. When tasted by a number of us here, some of the comments I heard mentioned were "tastes like classic, mature Chateauneuf du Pape from the 1980s," as well as "this is so Burgundian on the nose!" I can see where both of those statements were coming from, as the wine does have a lovely, earthy, red fruited nose, with tangy red fruits on the palate mixed with subtle hints of sweet root veges like beet and horseradish. Elegant, and a steal given the rarity, age, and complexity of the wine.” (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
