2011 Tinto Reserva, Pago De Los Capellanes

I have earlier tasted two wines from this producer and liked them a lot. Now it is time for their Reserva.

2011 Tinto Reserva, Pago de los Capellanes
With some air a big, gorgeous nose oozes up from the glass with notes of sweet rosemary, black cherries, dark chocolate, expensive leather, graphite and asphalt. Powerful yet balanced. Some wood smoke after a while. Very, very good.
The taste is young, tight and concentrated with lovely notes of ripe black cherries, chocolate mousse, sugared coffee, asphalt, iron and rosemary. A long, long, structured finish with lots of sweet tannins. This will need time to really unfold, but this will great in 5-8 years time.
