Winemaker's Notes:

A truly great wine, it boasts a dense purple color along with notes of camphor, creme de cassis, licorice, damp earth and forest floor. The beautiful fragrance is accompanied by a wine with a full-bodied, opulent texture, and a voluptuous, luxurious mouthfeel as well as finish.

With meaty, herbal, and earthy aromas, this wine has the soul typical of great Riberas. Pair this with lamb shank, roast beef, grilled steak and braised pork shoulder. For more casual fare, beef, lamb or bison burgers on the rare side and ropa vieja are good matches.

About Bodegas Vizcarra:

Bodegas Vizcarra Ramos was founded by Juan Carlos Vizcarra in 1991. They own 64 acres (26 hectares) of vineyards in the town of Mambrilla and Roa in Burgos.

What makes Vizcarra wines unique? For one, Juan Carlos Vizcarra's passion, determination and commitment are evident in these very elegant and complex wines.He is also one of a handful of genuine pioneer "garagistes" (small production winemaking) in the Ribera del Duero. Juan Carlos' Commitment to small production wines and gravity feed vinification results in genuine wines of purity and balance.
