Intense and bright cherry colour. Aromas of very ripe plums, blackberries as balsamic and pastry notes. Spicy hints, nutmeg, cinnamon and smoked. Mineral notes which is a peculiarity from our vineyards type of soils.
**91Wine Spectator** - "Rich and racy, this bold red delivers kirsch, macerated blackberry, licorice and espresso flavors. A generous texture is supported by firm tannins and orange peel acidity. A big, modern style that maintains balance. Drink now through 2020."
**91The Wine Advocate** - "The bottle of the 2010 Culmen Reserva looks and weighs like a magnum, but its 750ml. It's a blend of Tempranillo with 15% Graciano, showing some surprising herbal aromas in an Atlantic way, mixed with ripe black fruit, plenty of incense, cigar ash, and cedar wood aromas giving it a modern/classical profile with a Mediterranean/Atlantic feeling. The palate is medium to full-bodied with quite a lot of acidity and fine-grained, slightly astringent tannins that might require time in bottle to integrate."
