A juicy, robust red wine with attractive aromas of dark red berry fruit and toasty oak. Very fair price for this quality. This is a DO-designated wine.

Reviews and Ratings
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Enticing deep ruby colour. Full-bodied developing Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero. Cherry, blueberry, cassis, raisin, milk chocolate, vanilla, violet,anise over slight barnyard and juniper aromas.
Tannis are soft and well integrated. Ripe dark fruit still drives the palate wkth addition of black currant leaf, black earth, wet wood, black pepper.
Medium+ length on the fruit driven finish. Another 3-5 years before fruit is lost in this wine.
Pair with grilled meats, Prime Rib,
Tasted April 2014
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby in colour, made from the Tempranillo garpe, this full-bodied wine has refreshing flavours of cassis, black berry, milk chocolate, black plum, mint, juniper, over savoury and spicy notes. Fruit-driven, with well structured velvety tannins the flavours last on the palate.
Drink now, or keep until 2019.
Pair with lamb sliders, ribs, grilled steak or tenderloin.
Date tasted: April 2014.
