Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Mazuelo.

Intense red cherry color. Clean and bright. Complex aromas of stewed black berries with spicy touches of black pepper and mineral notes.

This wine is a great match with grilled and stewed meat. It also goes well with oven-baked fish or fish in sauce as well as cold meats and strong, dry cheeses.
