Winemaker's Notes:

Intense and dense cherry-red. Predominating aromas of violets, blackberries, cedar, leather and spice box. On the palate its structure is medium and plays with various fruits and a genuine taste of ripened blackcurrant with a good balance and a pure finish. It shows juicy and flows broadly until a finish that remains a long time.

It pairs perfectly with international food (curries, marinated fish and spicy dishes) and traditional red meats, game and cured cheeses.

90% Riojan Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo and Graciano.
