Wine Description

Made up of 90% Tempranillo, with 10% of Graciano, the 1997 was aged for fouryears in American oak, racked every six months and then bottled with minimalfiltration. The wine has a tawny lustre and a generous lifted nose of wildstrawberries, vanillin, wood-smoke and spice. The palate is soft and finelytextured with silky mature tannins, balsamic hints and a powerful, knowingfinish. (Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

    (2007 Vintage) This supple red delivers bright, focused flavors of dried cherry, orange peel, vanilla, sandalwood, tobacco and spice, with light tannins and fresh acidity. An elegant rendering of the traditional style.
