Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano and 10% Mazuelo aged for 16 months in oak barrels. Ripe, cherry red in color, the nose is long and complex with fragrances of leather, tobacco, balsams and spices. These scents are contributions from the oak barrels used for aging. The palate is warm, well-structured and meaty. The wine is aged 16 months followed by an additional 12 months in bottle prior to release from the winery.

Deep purple red. Rasberry and tea rose scents. Fairly powerful notes but not overwhelming, with a mineral and deep oak . spices. Very long lasting silky finish with exotic fresh fruit scent. Very pure and unique.
