Wine Review: This pitch black colored Tempranillo from the Toro region opens with a black raspberry and dark chocolate bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is an extracted blackberry with notes of oak, flinty minerality and olive. I also detected a hint of espresso and touch of molasses at the very end. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins stick around for quite a while. This Tempranillo is a serious wine. I would pair well with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A deep cherry color, high lamina, with violet colored notes in its border. Thanks to the barrel aging the wine acquired a very intense nose with mature black fruit aromas, well integrated with the toasted, spiced and smoked notes. Corpulent in the mouth with very mature and round tannins that give its sweetness. In the long and persistent aftertaste appear once again mature fruit perfectly assembled with the roasted character of the wood.
