Barnyard after the storm, decomposition, life, all with a deep inhalation.

Medium bodied, with overtones of cassis, blackberry. Undertones juniper, licorice, persimmon acid and fine cedar shavings, which integrate well within and linger with great length.

I'm giving it a few extra tenths for the way the fruit and acid play together in such juicy wonder. Perfect pairing tonight with our grilled loin lamb chops.

Vino de capa alta, en nariz primero mermelada de frutas rojas y negras, después miel tabaco y cuero. En boca fruta canela y vainillas con mucha expresión. Un vino goloso y redondo.😋😋😋

Sipping Fine Wine

Made from 100% Tempranillo from vines aging between 20 and 40 years old. Deep Ruby with aromas of Berry fruits and fragrant smoky oak. On the palate cherry and blackberry flavors with vanilla and cacao. Well balanced with acidity and approachable fine tannins. The wine needs a few years to pop but great now. On the finish the fruit comes through with mineral tones on a long finish.
