(85% tempranillo and 15% graciano; aged in a 50/50 mix of French and American oak, all of it new): Saturated ruby. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate and vanilla. Sweet dark berry flavors and notes of candied licorice and cola coat the palate, with juicy acidity adding support. The cola and blueberry notes carry through onto the long, sappy finish, which is framed by velvety tannins."
