La Vina de Andres Romeo 2010 has a very intense bright purple – garnet colour.  The nose is deep with hints of ripe tempranillo variety and mineral notes.  It is large, unctuous, oily and very sweet in the mouth, with a very nice finish.  We could be facing one of the most interesting vintages of La Viña in the eleven years that has been developed.
