Critical Acclaim

"The purple-colored 2007 Callejo Cuatro Meses en Barrica is 100% Tempranillo from estate vineyards fermented with native yeasts and aged four months in French and American oak. It delivers a fragrant perfume of smoke, earth notes, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a medium- to full-bodied wine with loads of succulent red and black fruit, a smooth-texture, excellent balance, and a seamless finish. Drink this easy-going effort over the next four years. "
