Opened this up on our last night at Riviera Maya. I thoroughly enjoy drinking wines from the nation or state we travel in. This happens to also be one of my new favorites. Earth tones, tobacco, leather, blackberry and more on the nose. Multiple layers and yet this has a relative softness on the finish that speaks to the age and blend. Highly recommend and as a side note - worth visiting the winery in Ensenada for the full experience.

Baja Tempranillo Cab blend... Vibrant medium ruby color. Clean leather, plum and French Vanilla on the nose. On the pallet it is immediately velvety with notes of dark fruit, cassis, vanilla and hints of smoke and chocolate. Elegant, with strong tannings and a long enticing finish. Most impressed. Paired with rosemary chicken; flavors worked extremely well.

A very early Fathers Day celebration brought out this bottle. In our area this is not an easy wine to get and so I try to limit for special occasions. I’ve had multiple vintages and while the 2013 is good, it might actually be at its peak compared to earlier years. Very balanced tannins, hints of leather, tobacco, dark but muted berries and a medium finish. This drank very smoothly and that might be due to the 45 minutes to hour decanting that opened it up. Like supporting MX wine and this is a good one to try.
