Similar to the Vega Sicilia process where barrel/bottle aging is 2 years of each, with 70/30 French/American oak. Some of the vineyard sources are at Vega Sicilia, with the rest scattered through the local region. For example 25 hectares are in Padilla, 40 in Pesquera.
The nose and palate show red opulent fruits, licorice, subtle French oak apparent with a spicy seasoning of wood and an underpinning of minerality and freshness from the cooler 2012 vintage.
250-280k bottles typically produced annually.

Could not get a decanter because of my Spanish ;). Really promising though.
