Wine Review: Another offering from Dominio Basconcillos that is right on the money. A fruitier wine that has plenty of toasted oak as the nose as well. The wine opens up with cherries, raspberries, and hints of sage. As the wine develops the cooking spices show through more, but there is always a touch of sweet fruit on the palate. The finish is of medium length with spicy tannins. Would pair this wine with a nice peppercorn crusted filet mignon. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Certified organic. Selected lots from clay and gravel soils. Deeply robed, black fruit and sage on the nose with rounded tannins and juicy fruit. Oak apparent but not dominant.

Organic status: organic
