Wine Review: This excellent midnight blue colored reserve wine from Spain opens with a blackberry bouquet with hints of leather and black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious black currant with nicely integrated cedar and black plum. The finish is dry and it tannins build up and drift away after quite some time. I would pair this terrific wine with a Grill 23 ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Elegant mineral and black fruit with subtle wood spice on the nose. Silky mouthfeel, fresh and long, with lingering minerality.

Organic status: not organic
