Tasting Notes and Scores

In Asia July, 2009 75% Tinto Fino, 25% Merlot & Malbec, released after 5 years aging, 3 in cask and 2 in bottle Very deep garnet-black colour. Complex, earthy, meaty nose with notes of warmed raspberries, fresh plums, milk chocolate and a hint of sweaty saddles. Medium to high acidity and medium to firm, slightly astringent tannins. Very long, layered finish. Drink now to 2020+. Tasted March 2009. The saturated purple 2004 Valbuena offers up an expressive perfume of mineral, scorched earth, espresso, incense, and black cherry. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied, intensely flavored, spicy wine with layers of fruit, soft tannins, and a pure, lengthy finish. It will benefit from another 5-7 years of bottle age and offer optimal drinking from 2015 to 2029.
