Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Grenache based blend from Spain opens with a rum raisin and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild black cherry with notes of gentle plum and faint old oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are very sticky and show very good length. This wine needs a fatty meal in the short term. I would pair it with braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aged 6 months in French and American barriques. Concentrated and voluptuous ripe fruit is complemented by strong minerality and wood spice on the nose and finish.
