"(85% tempranillo and 15% cabernet sauvignon): Dark ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet evokes blackberry, blueberry, violet and smoky oak, with a spicy element emerging slowly. Seamless and sweet, with energetic dark berry flavors, an exotic floral pastille quality and a jolt of black pepper that adds bite. Gains richness as it opens in the glass and finishes with clinging sweetness and fully absorbed tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
