Natalie's Score: 90/100

This wine was made from Tempranillo grapes gown on 30-year-old vines and then matured for a year in French and American oak. It floods the senses with ripe blackberries, dark plums, cedar and hickory smoke. Full-bodied, but velvety smooth with terrific balance and a long, warm finish.

Tempranillo food pairings: griled steak, hard cheese, duck, turkey, Mexican dishes.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of oak, balsamic, raisin, and dried black cherry open up to mocha, vanilla, and crushed black plum on the palate. I'm 89 on this wine. (ottawwinejournal.com)
