Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Tempranillo based wine from Navarra opens with an oak and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is tasty mild mineral infused gentle plum with notes of red raspberry and a hint of oak. The finish is dry and has lots of length to it. This very good Spanish value wine went perfectly with Steve's paella. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: To the eye: Vivid, slightly purplish in colour, reflecting its youth. On the nose: Combines the red berry aromas of the Grenache with the tannic structure of the Tempranillo. In the mouth: Fruity strawberry and raspberry thanks to the outstanding ripeness of the grapes. Drink in the next 3 years with meat, fish in sauce or cold meats and cheeses.
