Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Spanish red opens with an attractive ripe black cherry bouquet with notes of earth, leather, and menthol. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, juicy, and quite savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry with integrated notes of black pepper and old oak. There was also some spice and plum detected as well. The finish is dry and its tingly acidity lingers and mingles with the oak in the aftertaste. This wine would pair well with classic ragu bolognese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: From an exceptionally cool year, superb vineyard selection of the Tempranillo bunches has resulted in one of the most pure and elegant expressions in years. Bright raspberry fruit is underscored by the typically gravelly Pesquera minerality. A long finish includes integrated tannins for near-term enjoyment, well-balanced for many years of bottle evolution.
