Condado de Haza - Alenza Gran Reserva
Wow, this bottle in excellent shape, big, powerful and after a 30min open starts to soften and to open a lot of fruit concentration primary of black fruits of black currant, black cherry, blackberries, licorice, anise, some how and a little of leather, cigar box. The tannins although present are soften already makes the finish a pleasurable and long one. Enjoy this gran reserve which is in great shape right now.
