This is a step up in price from the regular bottling and while a nice wine, the 2019 Reserva is the better wine for less money (a note is posted on this site).  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has some shoe polish/volatile acidity along with spice, black cherries and slight licorice.  Very light, almost resolved tannins.  Black cherry fruit.  This drinks very easily and seems to be at peak.  Drink over the next few years.  It will work well with pizza.
