Hermanos Hernáiz Finca Emperatriz Gran Vino 2016 is an elegant, dry and juicy red produced from mostly Tempranillo with some Garnacha and Viura from the older vines on La Emperatriz estate. Fresh with great acidity for food with ripe plum, red berry, oak and pepper spice flavours on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews
