Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, aged 12 months in second-year French oak. Supple and ripe yet elegant, with claret-like cedar notes reminiscent of its sibling EVO (not to mention Bordeaux). 2005 offers ripe body with firm structure and intensity, the best example in a number of years. The original family estate in Cascante was founded in 1850 by Don Miguel Guelbenzu and received international awards for its wines before the end of the 19th century. Vineyards, reconstituted beginning in 1980 and totaling 42 hectares (105 acres), are dry-farmed in small parcels near the foot of snowcapped, 7,600-foot Mt. Moncayo, source of the Queiles River.
