 La Cueva del Contador 2010 is bright red-purple with upper layer.  The nose is very fine and deep.  Highlight the red and black fruit with spicy, mineral and balsamic notes.  The wood is very well integrated.  In the mouth it is elegant, exotic and well balanced in terms of maturity and freshness.  Final is very powerful and fine.
