Description

Fermentation of this wine takes place in stainless steel tanks, with maturation in French and American oak & lasting for two years. The nose is dominated by red fruit but beneath this initial onslaught of sweet strawberry & seductive raspberry, there is a mineral edge which harnesses the enthusiastic fruit & gives the overall canvas a sense of harmonious restraint. The beauty of a wine like this is that it appeals to amateur and enthusiast alike – pleasing ripe fruit on the front palate but so much more to be gleaned if one takes the time and energy to contemplate.

Critical Acclaim:

(85% tempranillo, with garnacha, graciano and mazuelo; aged in French and American oak, all of it older): Bright ruby-red. Aromas of candied cherry, licorice, rose oil and a hint of vanilla. A smoky quality comes up with air and carries onto the palate, which offers lively black raspberry and cherry flavors that pick up a refreshingly bitter edge with air. Closes long and gently tannic, with repeating smokiness and very good clarity, leaving notes of mocha and bitter chocolate behind.

Score: 91 points
