"Ripe berry aromas are warm, mossy and earthy, with oaky support. A full, fleshy palate is firmed up by solid tannins, while this tastes of black plum, berry fruits and savory spices. A medium-length finish is chewy and ripe. Drink through 2023. -MS"

"The 2015 'Excellens Special Cuvée' is an intriguing blend of 60% Garnacha with the remainder Tempranillo that were sourced from 25-30 year old vines. The nose is highly perfumed and energetic with deep dark fruits that mingle with shades of nutmeg and hints of chocolate that all mingle nicely in the glass. The palate delivers a good combination of verve and richness with kirsch, black tea and Asian spice flavors that mingle with the minerals and dusty terroir. Enjoy this beautiful, warm vintage wine, in the short-term. Drink 2019-2025"
