Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Vega Sindoa Cabernet-Tempranillo (55% and 45% respectively) experienced malolactic in French oak and was aged 13 months in both new and used wood. An amazing value, it boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet perfume of blackberries, currants, licorice, and smoked herbs. Supple-textured and medium-bodied, with loads of fruit, this is an extraordinary red to enjoy over the next 1-3 years. - The Wine Advocate
 
Coffee and smoke notes frame black fruit flavors in this extracted red. It has good density, with licorice and mineral accents. A bit austere, but balanced.  Drink now through 2012.— A Best Value, Wine Spectator

About Vega Sindoa:

Although the Valley of Valdizarbe has always been considered one of the best areas of production in Navarra and viticulture there is centuries-old, it almost disappeared due to the depressed prices of grapes and extreme weather conditions. This winery is one of the first to bring the vineyards back to the valley by the hands of an energetic winemaker, Concha Vecino, and an innovative vineyard manager, Jose Manuel Urricelqui.
