Winemaker's Notes

It is a blend of 40% Tempranillo, 30% Monastrell, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Mando. The wine is aged for 6 months in French oak before bottling. It is dark ruby in color displaying aromas of blueberries and black cherries. In the palate it is broad, chunky, flavorful and savory. It also has lovely dusty tannins and a medium to long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Inky ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry on the nose, with suave baking spice and pungent floral qualities adding nuance. Tangy and precise, offering fresh red fruit and mineral flavors and a silky texture. There's an enticing pinot-like freshness to this wine. Clean and focused on the very persistent finish. Very sexy wine. "
