The grapes for this wine come vineyards in the villages of La Horra, Gumiel de Izan and Moradillo from 12 to 80 year-old vines.
Displaying a good vibrant deep cherry red color with fragrant, clear notes of cherry drop and violet there is a beautifully unadorned yet brooding quality to this; it feels deep, vinous and vibrant, flecked with bright red fruit notes, sweet earth and a darker, more spiced character on the finish.
"Graphite and minerality take charge of this dynamic 100% Tempranillo from vines ranging between 20 and 80 years old. Juicy blackberry soon emerge and blue floral notes grab the tongue, part of the concentrated array of dried fruits and flora. Elegant to the core."

"Fruit-of-the-wood and charcuterie aromas lead the way for flavors of blackberry, raspberry, milk chocolate, olive paste and aniseed. here is a nice play of cool spice, savory characteristics and fruit set into plush tannins that gives way to a savory but bright finish. - Mike DESIMONE"
