Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% between Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha.

Full, morello cherry, ruby red, good intensity. Ripe autumn red and purple fruit, raspberries, damsons and sloes over a fine toasty vanilla complexity. Rich, deep and balanced. Well structured on the palate with plenty of fine, lingering rich fruit and a lively note of tannin. The finish is elegant and long with good balancing acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"Delicate scents of rose and raspberry cool the alcohol in this wine, keeping it light and youthfully bright. The acidity sparks off the tart red fruit, sharpening its cut for grilled meats, particularly duck. "
