Winemaker's Notes

Deep, dark cherry red color. Aromas are a complex mixture of intense ripe black fruit and fine oak character. Elegant, well structured and full bodied. Rich, long and satisfying on the palate.

Best with grilled and roast meat dishes.

100% Tempranillo

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Reserva from an outstanding vintage spent 18 months in French and American oak. Medium purple in color, it offers up an already complex nose of mineral, Asian spices, lavender, smoke, a hint of balsamic, and blackberry. With plenty of structure, excellent depth, and layered flavors, this lengthy effort will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring and will offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2020.
