Winemaker's Notes:

The nose has a fantastic range of blueberries, damson plums and cherries. Also there are intriguing smells of fresh tea, lavender and Turkish delight. The aromas give way to a palate chock full of intense, fresh and uplifting powerful pure blueberries and strong red fruits. The tannins are significant but not overwhelming as it gives the feeling of dark, bitter chocolate supported by blueberry coulis.
My Notes:

About Cien y Pico:

Cien y Pico [Hundred & Something] Background Note; Cien y Pico is our call to arms and means a [hundred & something] in La Mancha, the land of Don Quixote. Our vineyards are on the wide, dry plateau of the southern Castilian meseta, between the Mediterranean and Madrid, one thousand metres above sea level and surrounded by mountains that offer just enough protection from the icy winters that turn directly into warm summers.
