A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Tempranillo.

The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French Allier oak, aged for 13 months in new-to-3-yr-old barrels of French Allier oak.

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.
