Opaque purple. Deep dark fruit liqueur aromas are strongly influenced by vanillin oak and roasted coffee, with a spicy cracked pepper quality adding energy. Bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors are impressively structured and complicated by exotic floral pastille and Asian spices. Creamy dark berry flavors define the long, sappy finish. Very modern but also very seductive.

The 2005 Exopto is an unusual blend of 50% Graciano, 40% Tempranillo, and 10% Garnacha. which was barrel fermented and aged for 15 months in French oak. Opaque purple, the wine coats the glass with glycerin. It offers up aromas of toasty oak, spice box, blackberry and licorice, and on the palate it is quite massive but not nearly as complex as its sibling. This muscular wine should be cellared for several years after which it should drink well through 2020.
