(WA90) The 2012 Vizcarra Senda del Oro Roble (100% Tempranillo) was aged six months in French and American oak. Youthful, grapey and still slightly unformed, it tastes more like a barrel sample than a finished wine. Its dense ruby/purple color and big blast of black currant and blackberry fruit, licorice, vanillin and graphite are both impressive. The wine hits the palate with a suppleness as well as nicely textured opulence. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years.
