Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (87)

Review date: November 27, 2016

Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Spanish red is a good value. It opens with a pomegranate and faint new leather bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused plum and cedar blend. The finish id dry and it flavors are nicely prolonged. This good value wine would pair well with grilled steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The deep cherry color with red and black fruits with earth and dried fruit overtones. An excellent red wine with a wide and embracing approach. It has a balance in the nose, where the fruit seems to be riper and the balsamic aromas more noticeable. A full-bodied and very well structured wine. Its tannins are noticeable but very pleasant. Very long and persistent finish.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
