My Review: Remarkably complex and well structured wine that sells for half of what it could (don't tell anyone that though)!
90% Tempranillo, aged for 2 years in oak, then one year in bottle before release gives this full bodied wine an incredibly soft mouthfeel, with complex and well integrated flavours that pair perfectly with braised meats, especially lamb with rosemary, garlic, and thyme.
Plums, herbs, spices, balsamic notes, sauteed mushrooms, cedar, and sandalwood on the nose with matching flavours leading to a long round savory finish.
Widely available, but not well known, this has been my go-to wine for years, and has always impressed the friends I enjoy it with. For less than $23, this wine offers exceptional complexity and value. Score: 92/100
