Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Spanish red is a good value. It opens with a pomegranate and faint new leather bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused plum and cedar blend. The finish id dry and it flavors are nicely prolonged. This good value wine would pair well with grilled steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The deep cherry color with red and black fruits with earth and dried fruit overtones. An excellent red wine with a wide and embracing approach. It has a balance in the nose, where the fruit seems to be riper and the balsamic aromas more noticeable. A full-bodied and very well structured wine. Its tannins are noticeable but very pleasant. Very long and persistent finish.
