95pts James Suckling

Aromas of chocolate, smoked meat and berries. Really perfumed and subtle. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, creamy tannins that show tension and poise. Mellow and fine. So silky and brilliant. Complex. Polished. Drink now or hold.
90pts Wine Spectator
This sleek red offers raspberry and plum flavors flanked with anise, orange zest and mineral notes that are focused and fresh, followed by a smooth finish. Drink now through 2029.
90pts Wine & Spirits
Fresh and juicy depths of boysenberry flavor provide a base to this wine’s layers of cherry skin and damp earth, as if the bright sun cast its light into an otherwise dark cellar. It’s cool, fragrant and earthy, a red to serve with grilled suckling lamb.

Winemaker Notes
On the nose, echoes of healthy and mature red fruit in after a perfect maturation. Floral and balsamic notes add freshness, all together in harmony with subtle toasted notes from its time in barrel. In the mouth, fine and subtle with nice tannins and perfect acidity that make it a persistent wine with a long finish.

Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo and Garnacha
