All about nuance and finesse, not the typical Gran Rerva in my experience. Dark cherries, earth, dried flowers, and leather/tobacco.

This is a nice 10 yr old wine IF you like American oak. It's not over the top oaky at all, but you can tell it's American (not a favorite of Mia's). SS

Silky smooth, well balanced, some syrupy sweetness (but dry).

Luscious and intense. Ripe red fruit with a sour cherry twang from the high acidity. Good structure and a satisfying finish.

A beautiful wine with layers of flavors and a richness not typical of tempranillo.
