Winemaker's Notes

This blend of Tempranillo (75%) and Granacha (25%) is deep cherry red. The aroma is a perfect harmony from ripe fruit and the maturation in American oak casks. The flavor is powerful, spicy, round, enveloping and vigorous. All the varied flavours are bound together in elegant harmony. The aftertaste is long, pleasurable and insistent The fine colour, good extract, high alcoholic content and ideal pH and acidity lead us to believe that this vintage will turn out to be one of the great Rioja vinta...
