Wine Review: This pitch black colored Tempranillo from Spain is more New World that Old World style. It was praised by the panel as being one of our top wines we covered this fall. It opens with a gentle black plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, elegant, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a delicious juicy plum with hints of blueberry, minerality and gentle oak. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins drift away nicely. The panel suggested pairing this with prime rib or even on its own. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Old vineyards with a balanced production, nurtured winemaking and thoughtful permanence. A wine with intense color, a complex bouquet, structured in the mouth, with an elegant and long, lingering finish, distinguished and enriched by the peculiarities of each vintage.
