Winemaker's Notes

100% Tempranillo from La Mancha. Deep, bright ruby red. Soft, chewy berry fruit with substantial flavor and texture.

Its dark ruby color is followed by Pinot Noir-like aromas of flowers as well as sweet and sour red cherries. This fresh, lively, youthful red begs to be drunk over the next 1-2 years. It can even be served slightly chilled."
