Winemaker's Notes:

Estate-grown fruit, limestone soil, Pétrus clones of Merlot and Cab. Unique micro-clime. Bordeaux-style wines with good acidity. The Tempranillo portion of Dignus helps makes the wine approachable at a younger age.

50% Tempranillo, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.

This hearty wine is best paired with rich dishes and dense flavors. Osso bucco, braised beef and pork shanks, spätzle with wild mushroom sauce, and bull and ox stews are all great matches for this wine. Both wine and food will help the other to reveal the depth of layered aromas and flavors each possesses.

My Notes:

About Baron de Magana:

Navarra is rapidly becoming recognized as the source of some of Spain's best value wines. The Magana brothers were among the first to see the potential of the area, especially for the classic Bordeaux grape varieties. During the 1970's they planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec in their 60 hectares of vineyards. Later they added Syrah and Tempranillo.
