What an incredible surprise! This is a most delicious red blend of 5 varietels from Galicia. Ripe, garnet red juice. Smooth sophistication, velvet mouth feel. Gorgeous wine.

Extraordinarily perfumed with notes of citrus peel, green tea, violets, fresh berries and sun-warmed terra cotta. The cool Atlantic climate shows in a sip as lively, graceful, fresh, dancing over the palate before velvety tannins linger on the close.

Cherry, musky, touch of matcha and mushroom on the nose. Lean and muscular, sour cherry, salt on the palate. It's one of those "field blend" CA reds, but with more lithe and light on its feet. 2015 vintage.
