Not quite sure what to expect but I am hoping it will be more than decent. Crossing fingers.
How was this DD?
This was drinkable but clearly over the hill (and storage wasn't ideal with a saturated cork three quarters up) if using Bordeaux as a baseline since I have no experience with Spanish wines. The nose was more interesting with a little bit of fruit and flower garden than the taste which seemed tired.
