Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine opens with a fragrant ripe red raspberry bouquet with hints of spice and strawberry licorice. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is an extracted blackberry with notes of black currant. The finish is dry and its building tannins show up quickly and stick with you a while. This wine would pair well with beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 100% Tempranillo from brush-pruned vines, with malolactic fermentation and 15 months’ aging taking place in American oak barriques. 2005 combines the velvety ripeness and rich texture of previous vintages, adding elements of freshness and restraint. A great vintage.
