Winemaker's Notes

Color: Intense ruby, with the crimsons prevailing over a clean, bright, background, attesting to the wine's youth. The glass is inundated with legs suggesting alcoholic strength and an oily palate.

Aroma: The initial nose is dominated by the best of the new oak: hints of toast on a spicy background. The fruitiness lurks just beneath the wood, reminiscent of ripe blackberries delicately combined with suggestions of raspberry and cranberry.

Taste: Moderate acidity, fostering the splendor of a rounded wine, excellently structured on sweet tannins and the characteristic velvety nature of the tempranillo, which give rise to an initial smoothness and elegant and lingering finish.

Serving suggestions: This wine is ideally served at room temperature to accompany pork and beef, as well as rice and vegetable dishes and various semi-soft cheeses.

I got this wine in my first wine club shipment and it remains my favorite wine. Very smooth flavor. I enjoyed drinking it by itself and with various foods (including Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners).
