Stainless-steel fermented for 18 days. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels. Bottle unfined and unfiltered.

"Fans of Miguel Angel de Gregorio’s Finca Allende wines from Rioja will want to snap up this excellent, lush-styled blend of Graciano, Merlot and Petit Verdot from La Mancha. This wine almost proves that talent is as important as terroir, because no other La Mancha wine features this grape blend, these rich and pure medicinal flavors, and a smooth-handed sense of balance that calls for drinking now through 2013."
"A top-notch offering from this nearly forgotten, vast viticultural region, this 1,000-case cuvee is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Syrah along with small quantities of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Graciano. Its inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by smoky, creme de cassis-like aromas presented in a full-bodied, fleshy, modern, international style. Consume this reasonably priced Spanish red over the next 5-6 years."
The Wine Advocate
I don't think I would buy it again. 2.5 to 3 stars.
Not a huge fan. Ordered 7 bottles and have cracked two. I'm hoping the shipment I received was not properly stored because this wine has a port sweetness i'm not fond of, which makes me think its past it's prime. Hope others had a better experience
