Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored wine opens with a mild black cherry and red currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a gentle oak infused black and red raspberry blend. The finish is dry, a tad hot, and its mild oak tannins are slightly prolonged. This wine would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: 80% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 10% Garnacha, fermented with the natural yeast and aged nearly two years in fine grained new French oak. Manually harvested from estate vineyards over 40 years of age in the Rioja Alta villages of Uruñuela, Cenicero and San Asensio.
