Wine Review: This midnight purple colored blend from Quinta de la Rosa opens with a black cherry and cassis bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a very tasty black currant and black cherry blend with notes of black tea and oak. I also detected hints of plum and a touch of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins linger nicely. This blend is very food friendly and would pair nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The grapes matured perfectly in 2015 resulting in a Reserve wine that gives a maximum expression and complexity. Pretty floral notes give a dramatic impact to this very attractive wine. It has so much fruit and true, authentic complexity that it makes it hard to describe. Excellent structure and a texture full of fruit that one can find exactly the same flavors on the nose as on the palate. Succulent tannins give a touch of class and longevity to this excellent wine. The wine would be best served with red meats and more powerful dishes. It is a wine that can be drunk now or aged for up to 10 years.
