Winemaker's Notes

Made from 100% Tempranillo grapes harvested by hand in October. The grapes are then fermented in stainless steel tanks for ten days, then aged in American and French oak barriques for 16 months. The wine then undergoes 20 months in bottle, for additional refinement.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh, firm and long. This balanced red offers crisp cherry, cola, vanilla, tobacco and fresh herb flavors, supported by well-integrated tannins that give way to a spicy, floral finish. Drink now through 2011. 15,000 cases made. "
