Wine Review: Medium dark ruby in color, this fragrant Tempranillo wine opens with aromas of strawberry, saddle leather, musk and freshly turned loam. Medium in body, some of the strawberry follows on to the palate but the core is red currant with a pronounced minerality and moderate acidity. The toasty oak and firm tannins leave and bring it into better balance and continue to a dry finish of medium length. Enjoy this wine with grilled lamb. - Jeoff

Winemaker Notes: The wine is deep cherry red in color with purple hints at the rim. On the nose, aromatic complexity reveals floral notes and black fruits such as blackberries, blueberries and plums. The fruit is complemented by elegant notes of sweet spices and gentle smokiness from time in the barrel. On the palate, this is a wine which shows great personality with smooth tannins, a fruit driven mid-palate and a mineral finish lending elegance and finesse.
