Wine Description

(From 2001 Vintage) Aromas of dried cherry and rose petals, flavors of dark berries and tobacco, ripe tannins and a long, inviting finish.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is made up of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo. After fermentation and maceration, the wine is matured for 28 months; 80% in American oak casks from West Virginia and 20% in French oak casks from Les Vosges. Fantastic with stewed meats and roasts best served at a temperature between 18 and 19 degrees celcius. An intense and complex wine.
