  • About this wine

    Dark violet color. Toasty aromas and flavors of craisins, chocolate nuts and cake, French toast with maple, and sandalwood with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a tingling, captivating, medium-length chocolate cherry bonbons, watermelon vanilla gelato, peppered nuts, and earth finish with a suggestion of oak. A bright and fruity Spanish red that drinks effortlessly. Tastings.com

    Young and vibrant aromas of bramble fruit, black cherry, strawberry essence, and burned sugar are intriguing. A fresh acidity balances sweet red berry fruits and a hint of bitter herbs on the palate and it finishes fruity and dry. 2018 Ultimate Wine Challenge

    A lush blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon; smooth, rich and nicely balanced; dense and deep – a remarkable value. 90 Points The Tasting Panel Magazine – September 2018

    Blueberry and fresh citrus aromas pour from the glass of this rich and fleshy red. The sweetness of the palate largely obscures the healthy tannic base of this crowd-pleaser, only showing its hand on the pleasantly dry finish. A blend of tempranillo with cabernet and garnacha/grenache. 90 Points – James Suckling
