Palate Profile

Made from 85% Tempranillo and 15% Mazuelo (Carignan). Aged in American oak for 18 months. Deep ruby in colour. Musky, smoky aromas of dried cherry and dark berries, with notes of cedar and cured meat adding complexity. Distinctly wild, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavours and suggestions of chewing tobacco and smoky herbs. Dusty tannins add grip to the finish, which leaves dark chocolate and peppery spice notes behind. Old-school Rioja all the way. 

Clean, bright. Cherry red color with ruby evolution. Medium deep. Aromas of cloves with sweet hints, and toasted notes from the barrel very well integrated. Highly polished tannin. Very well balanced acidity. Pleasant in the mouth. Long finale. The fruit and spicy notes remain along wit an aroma of notes.

Critic Awards

Plenty of ripe berries, dried flowers and sandalwood on the nose here. It’s full-bodied with round, creamy-textured tannins and a delicious, savory finish. An attractive combination of fruit and nuts.

Red-violet in color, this wine offers a bouquet of black plum and tobacco leaf. It is juicy in the mouth, with flavors of cranberry and strawberry as well as notes of dark chocolate, oregano and roasted almond set into a network of velvety tannins. Bright fruit notes persist into an enduring finish.

Juicy and well-spiced, this medium-bodied red offers compact layers of mulled cherry, loamy earth, mocha and iron, with creamy tannins. A restrained version, subtle and elegant, this opens nicely in the glass. Tempranillo and Mazuelo.
