"(90% tempranillo and 10% graciano; aged in American oak for a year): Deep red. Vibrant red berry and vanilla aromas are accented by a peppery nuance. Pliant cherry-vanilla and raspberry flavors show a distinct sweetness and provide very good palate coverage. Supple and persistent Rioja with gentle grip and lingering sweetness. - Josh Raynolds"
