Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored Spanish Red opens with a black raspberry and dark chocolate like bouquet with hints of oak and black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused blackberry with notes of boysenberry and very mild oak in the distant background. The finish is dry and its very mild dusty tannins linger slightly. This Old World styled wine would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Forty percent Monastrell, 40% Tempranillo, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Elaborated separately then blended and aged four months in French oak, these three varieties come together to shape a well structured, concentrated, and intensely aromatic blend. Structured, mouth filling, juicy and fresh.
