The bare facts – that this is a blend of Únicos from 2003, 2004 and 2006 – disguise the lovely complexity of the wine. On the nose there is very fine cedar, rose and dark fruits; altogether a very polished elegance. In the mouth, the wine is bold, dense and textured with a note of citrus running through the dark liquorice and spice richness. It needs more time to knit together, but is very promising. Mostly Tinto Fino with a little Cabernet Sauvignon.
