This Spanish red wine is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Red Grenache and 5% Mazuelo grapes for the 2011 vintage. The wine was aged for 24 months in American white oak barrels. Aromas of dried dark fruit and herbs on the nose and palate. Dried fruit and cigar box on the palate. Finishes with spices and dusty earth. Pair with lamb. This wine produced by Bodegas Franco-Españolas. Pair with prime rib.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
