The most prodigious wine in this portfolio is the 2001 Gran Elias Mora. Fashioned from 50-year old Tinto de Toro (Tempranillo) vines, and bottled unfiltered, this magnificent, dense purple-colored effort boasts a sweet perfume of roasted meats, scorched earth, blackberry liqueur, and cassis. It is a dense, full-bodied, fleshy effort revealing beautifully integrated wood, acidity, and tannin. Flamboyant yet well-delineated, it will be a treat to drink over the next decade.
