Deep ruby blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha from the Rioja region. Full-bodied dark cherry, cassis, eucalyptus, celery salt, warm spices, garrigue, parsnip, leather. A lingering warm fruit driven finish. Tannins are ripe and softening.

Food friendly.
Good Canadian comfort food wine: BBQ, beef stew, Tortiere, old cheddar.

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Offering a bouquet of baked raspberries, vanilla and clove, and a palate of ripe red berry fruit supported by ample toasty oak. Perfect for Moroccan lamb stew. Enjoy through 2018. Tasted April 2014.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Full-bodied, this blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes has flavours of black cherry, cassis, wild strawberry, celery, cloves, eucalyptus, and garrigue.
This complexity lingers on the warming, supple finish.
Drink now, or keep until 2017.
Pair with beef stew, lamb, or mushroom/Port/brie flatbread.
Date tasted: April 2014.
