Original Post
I was very impressed with this wine when I tasted it at the winery last July:

"Rich nose of anise and dfark fruit with a bit of parsely. 60% CariƱena, 30% Garnacha, 9.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 0.5% Syrah. Excellent depth of flavor. Spice and ripe blackberries. Outrageous for a 3rd wine. Needs a year or two. 91-92"

The wine was served to us from a decanter. I have no idea how long the wine had been in the decanter.
