"...raised in older American oak casks for all of four months during its elevage, so this is not a particularly oaky wine. The 2015 version comes in at fourteen percent alcohol and offers up a fine bouquet of dark berries, bonfire, hung game, chicory, salty soil tones, just a whisper of US oak tones and a beautifully complex array of spice elements. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and beautifully balanced, with a fine core of fruit, excellent soil signature, moderate tannins and a long, poised and very complex finish. This is simply outstanding and one of the best wines I have yet tasted from Frontón de Oro! 2018-2040."
