The 2009 Senorio de Los Baldios is aged in used French and American oak over 14 months. Once again, the nose deftly assimilates the oak, allowing the floral, dark plum, cassis and mineral notes to blossom in the glass. The palate has a keen citric thread that marries well with the plush cassis, blueberry and small dark cherry fruit, while the finish is focused and refined. This is another excellent, accomplished wine from Garcia de Aranda. Drink now-2018.”

Medium intensity ripe black cherry and plum fruit with oak and lots of dusty tannins.  This was pleasant, but not the blockbuster described above. Tasted with Cindy.
