Jito72 93

Excellent with a superb nose of floral, toasty vanilla and oak notes, sweety red fruits. This wine is very balance and lot of finesse in mouth and pretty fine integrated tannins on a medium to long finish.

Consistent notes. Nice dark youthful ruby color; full nose of smoky, earthy black fruit; quite intense fruit on the palate and still youthfully rustic with tannins beginning to soften; it is evolving slowly. A very good CDP that may benefit from more time and should drink nicely over the next several years.
