TASTING NOTE: The 2005 Arvum was also sourced from a single plot with vines ranging in age from 80-100 years. The blend is 55% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo, with the balance Graciano and Mazuelo aged for 16 months in new French oak. Saturated purple in color, it displays a brooding, slightly roasted bouquet of incense, scorched earth, lavender, and black fruit compote. Layered and opulent on the palate, it is loaded with savory, spicy black fruit flavors, an expansive mouth-feel, and enough structure to evolve for 3-5 years. Drink this impressive offering from 2014 to 2025. Score - 93+ (Jay Miller, robertparker.com, April 26, 2010) Price $ 61.95
