Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An inviting nose of fresh cherries, vanilla and baking spice, followed by a bright flavourful palate showing red fruit, leather, sweet spice, toasty oak and a touch of smoke. Acidity levels make it a great wine for food, with a long, tart cherry finish. Perfect for savoury appetizers such as olives or cured ham, or with roast leg of lamb.
Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Ruby Colour with aromas of ripe cherry and horsesaddle notes. Some seasoned oak as well. In the mouth, full body with chewy fruit and a nice acidity. Drink now
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Deep cherry colour which is typical of vibrant Tempranillo wine. The wine has a pronounced nose full of rich, intense aromas of ripe red fruits with subtle, sweet notes of vanilla and sweet spices. The palate is fresh, soft and velvety with flavours of redcurrants, vanilla and chocolate leading to a long elegant finish.

Spicy dark red fruit and dried herbs on the nose of this robust Spanish red wine. The wine is aged for 1 year in the winery's cellar in oak. Try this wine with Serrano ham and grilled meats.
