Winemaker's Notes:

Bright, opaque pomegranate color with purple hues. Aromas range from blackberries to smoked wood to toasted bread and nutmeg. Soft and elegant in the mouth, yet blunt and powerful. The wine develops in multiple layers, demonstrating the integration of the Tempranillo fruit and subtle oak ageing. It lingers on the palate, fresh and juicy, returning to the fruit of the first taste.
