Long-aged wines such as Gran Reservas are often past their prime, but not this one. Itâ€™s oooozing charm, hitting all the right notes making you want more, and more, and more. I like how thereâ€™s enough tang to refresh between bottles â€“ I mean sips, and thereâ€™s a delicacy uncommon in Spanish reds â€“ magic without heavy richness. Youâ€™d have to be pretty hard-hearted, not to be seduced by this wine. And the sale price.
