(2014) Loads of currant, blueberry intensity, with again the sweet, creamy and spicy American oak very much in the mix, but more intensity to the fruit than in the Gavilan Rioja. Gorgeous fruit sweetness and freshness on the palate: there's a blue/black intensity to this, a real juiciness and vitality, the edge of acidity and the pert creaminess of the tannins are lovely, long and tapering to a sweet, gentle finish.
(2013) I've recently awarded the little brother of this wine, The Joven, my Wine of the Week with a full video review. Made from Tempranillo and aged 13 months in French oak, this dramatically dark, saturated wine has such a glossy pool of deep black fruit that you could dive right in. There's a sheen of oak, a touch of roasted chestnut and a little hint of chocolate too. In the mouth it is a big, substantial wine, with 14% alcohol and a broad texture, it fills the mouth with savoury black fruits that are juicy and tangy, blueberry and damson as well as cassis. The spice and suppleness of the tannins is a joy, the acidity fresh and appetising, in a long, structured wine that must surely have significant cellaring potential too.
