"The elegance, finesse and nuance of the 2015 La Dama is simply irresistible. It's ethereal, perfumed, elegant and complex (rose petals, orange peel, wild herbs...), even if it's extremely young. It's bright ruby, with great purity and detail, transparent and full of energy. It is harmonious and nicely textured, with chalky tannins and a stony sensation. It's more powerful than it feels and has the stuffing and balance to develop nicely in bottle. This is truly sensational, full of mineral energy. 6,878 bottles were filled in May 2017." (WA)
