TASTING NOTES

Combining Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo, 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano to brilliant effect, this is a delicious expression of place as well as vintage. Elegant, understated and aromatic, it has notes of incense and tobacco leaf, stylish, fine-grained tannins, well-integrated oak and a finish that lingers on the palate.
