I bought this wine back in June of last year. Looks like there isn’t any more at the LCBO, which is a crying shame. I actually went back and grabbed more it was so good. Out of the bottle there was a bitterness to the wine, but I could taste underlying goodness just waiting to be uncovered. After decanting for 1 hour the wine displayed lovely tastes with some complexity. The Oak is well under control and the usual black berry flavors are there. The finish is medium. This is a good tempranillo. I would agree with the 3-5 years in the cellar improving this even more. Too bad I don’t have more!

From the LCBO web site:
DO Costers del Segre
The wine is a blend of 58% Tempranillo, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Carignan, 4% Syrah and 3% Merlot, aged for 9 months in a new French oak. The aromas are complex, featuring blackberry, black currant, black pepper, cedar and spices. Dry with good fruit surrounded by softening tannins and a good acid streak. This superb wine is an ideal choice for grilled steak, plus it will also reward 3-5 years in a cellar.
