Wine Review: This ruby colored wine from Spain opens with a faint strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and delicate. The flavor profile is a nicely integrated blend of gentle plum with notes of herbs. I also detected some hints of mild minerality, oak and a dash of pepper. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. I would pair this with game bird or veal cutlet. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is our best-known wine worldwide. Produced from a selection of the best grapes from each of our vineyards, it combines the richness of a Tempranillo and the elegance of a Cabernet Sauvignon with the strength of a Syrah. Dark red colour with a clean, complex and fresh nose. On the palate, it has an intense fruity touch, mainly of red fruits. Aged 16 months in French and American oak barrels, the wood infuses notes of cedar, pastry and dark roasting. It attacks the palate politely but firmly.
