Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red with a pale violet rim. On the nose the characteristic Sonsierra red fruits combine with touches of spicy wood. In the mouth it is tasty, spicy and structured, with hints of vanilla and coffee and a good balance between wine and oak. The finish is long with a pronounced back taste.

Pairs well with red and white meat, roast lamb, pork, beef, game, poultry, stews, rice dishes, pulses, mushrooms and mature or blue cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"Ruby-red. Enticing aromas of dark berries, cherry incense, oak spices and pungent flowers. Sweet cherry-vanilla and blackberry flavors show good clarity and energy thanks to zesty acidity and a spicy element. Puts on weight with air and finishes with smooth, even tannins and lingering notes of mocha and dark berries."
