Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

100% Tempranillo. Dark red color with blue reflections, confirming the wine's youth; an intense robe for a bright wine. The nose displays full red-fruit aromas, including cherries and strawberries, and is reminiscent of black licorice and ripe blackberries, integrated with elegant, clean oak notes. There is a strong, balanced mouth feel, showing good structure and a rounded wine, with hints of berries on the palate and a persistent, lingering finish. Pair with pork and beef, as well as rice and vegetables dishes and various semi-soft cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Purple-colored, it displays an expressive nose of red fruits, black licorice, and blackberry with a hint of cedar. Ripe, sweet, and moderately structured on the palate, this forward, amiable effort is meant for drinking now and over the next 3 years."

Style: Smooth & Supple
I love this wine. It is so smooth, light bodied a real pleasure to drink on it's own. It is very similar to a Pinot Noir but Spanish style. I am not one to do wine pairing. I just love to drink this wine on it's own. I am half way through my 2nd case in several months. This is difficult to get in the Denver area. I originally found this through Wine Insiders. They however, no longer carry it. Thank you wine.com for carrying this.
