Monastrell (65%) blended with Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Garnacha Tintorera (15%) Aromas of dark fruits and purple flowers. Flavors of black raspberry, bramble and graphite. Hint of green pepper (Probably from the Cabernet Sauvignon). Full bodied but balanced acidity (high altitude?) and silky tannins. Nice touch of oak. Pleasant surprise.

Good balanced! Slight bitter, black fruits. Not much concentrated. Lots of vanilla flavor. 2016 @600, Kping - pane e vino, 200709
