"Cirsion has a deep, blackish purple colour, its aromas unravel in successive waves of very black fruit, damp earth, violets, chocolate and mint, eucalyptus, smoke. On the palate, it has huge volume combining in astonishing manner great structure with wonderful smoothness. Layers and layers of aromas and flavours which linger in the mouth, caressing it before developing into a finish that stays in the mouth and returns to the nose. It is advisable to decant the wine several hours before serving, especially the younger vintages." -winemaker
"The 2005 Cirison is 100% Tempranillo from hand-selected grapes. Purple-colored, it offers a splendid nose of acacia flowers, spice box, mineral, leather, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur. This leads to a powerful, opulent wine which manages to retain a sense of elegance. All components are harmonious and well-integrated. There is enough structure for 6-8 years of evolution and this top-flight effort will be at its best from 2015-2030." -Jay Miller, Wine Advocate

"Alluring smoky, toasty oak notes frame plum and bitter chocolate flavors in this firm yet refined red. A bit dark and austere in character, but marries concentration and balance. Best after 2009. 70 cases imported." –TM, Wine Spectator
