Tempranillo I find usually has a very dry finish , even more so than cabs. However, this wine is very fruit forward and smooth with good body and a beautiful light finish. It almost reminds me of a malbec or well oak aged Pino noir. No wonder this vineyard is so celebrated.

Wonderfully smooth, light bodied, tart raspberry, cranberry, copper, maple, licorice, tobacco, not too dry... that's according to my very novice palate. 😊

Pleasant and easy to drink. Lacked acidity and complexity that I was looking for.
