Natalie's Score: 87/100
A bone-dry Spanish red wine blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Carinena grapes. Smoky, earthy, not fruit forward. Pair with lamb.

|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of blueberry, graphite, cedar, and black cherry. The taste is bold with blackberry, black cherry, and graphite. Definitely a rare red meat wine.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This 7+ year old wine is "a point" right now, the tannins are quite tame, dark berry fruit soft, as is the acidity, and alcohol only 13%. Notes of leather and spice weave through. A bit of a lightweight, but pleasant enough. Drink now.
|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Bold sunny nose full of spices (clove) and black cherries with notes of cedar and char. The mouth is simpler and it might be a good thing, but might be underwhelming for people who like flavour bomb. I think it is missing something to be great. Would be nice with grilled rosemary lamb.
|Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
I would have expected this to be a fuller wine than it was with the blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Carinena grapes. A smooth, medium body red that should be drunk now. The fruit has faded and the tertiary aromas are more prevalent. Pair with meatloaf or chicken burgers for a Friday night meal!
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:|
An interesting blend, despite it petering out at the end…
Presentation: Classic, somewhat underwhelming, but easy to read.
Appearance: Medium-dark ruby
Nose: Sour cherries, cedar
Taste: Cedar, wood, earth, leather.
Finish: Long, cedar, but a little flat.
Overall impression: Interesting. I’m a little disappointed that the wine falls a little flat at the end given the combination of varietals in the wine.
Value: 3.5 out of 5
