"(90% tempranillo and 10% cabernet sauvignon; aged for two years in new French oak): Bright ruby. Sexy strawberry, raspberry and vanillin oak spices on the nose, along with hints of Asian spices and smoked meat. Deeper and darker on the palate, offering powerful red and dark berry liqueur flavors, with energetic minerality adding vivacity. Finishes with serious grip, juiciness and persistence, leaving a sexy vanila note behind. - JR"
