The 2006 Los Cantos de Torremilanos is 100% Tempranillo aged for 13 months in one-third new French oak. Purple-colored, its nose reveals wood smoke, lavender, pencil lead, black cherry, and blackberry. Firm and structured on the palate with an elegant personality, this lengthy effort will evolve for another 2–3 years and drink well through 2021.

Deep ruby. Ripe blueberry and plum aromas are brightened by baking spices and minerals. Rich, chewy dark berry flavors pick up lively cracked pepper and bitter chocolate with air, along with dusty tannins. Deep but energetic wine: I like the way the tannins smooth out with air, allowing the fruit to come forward.

Not run-of-the-mill on the bouquet, where floral notes dance with dark fruit aromas, shoe polish and oil. The palate is more closed and choppy than ideal, with a gritty mouthfeel, ribald tannins and a closed palate that is focused but short. Not an overly generous wine, but it does walk the straight and narrow on its way to an honest ending.
