Wine Review: An accessible Spanish Tempranillo that is slightly cloudy and deep garnet colored. It opens with aromas of dark plum, leather, spice, earthy and violets. It is full bodied with medium acidity. It is also dry, slightly earthy and rustic, but with good balance. I found flavors of spiced plum, vanilla oak and red cherry. There are plenty of dusty tannins in the long finish. It would pair well with homemade Italian beef braciole. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: This wine is a bright red cherry color with medium intensity. Intense and complex, with a ripe red fruit bouquet and fine hints of its time in wood (spices, coffee and vanilla). The palate is round, elegant and balanced, maintaining a long level of freshness.
