"This wine is so intense, that it is almost inky, with a brilliant and clean garnet rim. A very complex and elegant wine, with plenty of subtle and delicate notes, such as ripe fruit and blue flowers. The complexity is enhanced with delicacy, thanks to its barrel aging and also having undergone malo-lactic fermentation in new French oak. Very long balsamic and creamy after-taste. This wine represents the concentration of elegance. The ripe fruit tannins are still very refreshing, and the oak does not shade its vivid fruit. Its aging potential can well develop for over 15+ years." —winemaker

Blend: 40% Monastrell, 30% Tempranillo, 15% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
"Solid tannins give a firm foundation to this focused red, supporting harmonious flavors of plum, licorice, graphite and tar. Juicy acidity keeps this lively. The finish offers an alluring mix of spice and floral notes. Graceful and expressive. Drink now through 2022. 1,000 cases made. Highly Recommended." —Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator
