Telmo Rodriguez La Social 2016 (91 VM)
“Limpid ruby. Incisive, mineral-accented red and blue fruit and floral scents show fine clarity and pick up a spicy nuance with aeration. Smooth in texture and appealingly sweet, offering nicely concentrated blueberry and black raspberry flavors braced by an undercurrent of juicy acidity. Finishes very long and silky, with sneaky tannins and resonating red fruit and mineral notes.” – J.R.
