The wines from Ronda tend to be quite earthy due to the heavily weathered limestone presence in the soil. This wine incorporates this deep minerality nicely with black fruit aromas and flavors, and a spiciness that brings it all together. Acid is medium plus, tannins are smooth yet grippy meaning this will age, although with a nice decant it is drinkable now.

Very well made wine. Some raisin me rightness due to southern Spain locale. Oak is integrated. Nice acid and fresh fruit. Nice long finish.
