Aragonés, the primary grape in this blend – which also includes Trincadeira and Alicante Boushet – is one of the many pseudonyms of the noble Tempranillo grape. Quite a beautiful nose here with notes of coffee, vanilla, dark fruits and raspberry, with a lifted violet. Dry and crisp, the palate displays excellent balance, with well-integrated tannins lending ample structure. More blackberry, raspberry, coffee and vanilla en route to a nice, long finish.
