An alluring cast of blooming crimson and deep red shades are immediately present in the glass. Complimenting the appearance is an impressive intensity on the nose with elevated dark cherry and exotic spice notes. The entry is rich with youthful berry compote, floral, and plum flavors, complimented with bright acidity. The finish is expansive and pleasing with a persistent mocha tinge and silky tannins.

The Tasting Panel
Winemaker Dave Phinney sources grapes from five regions throughout Spain for this blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo, Monastrell/Mourvèdre, and Cariñena aged ten months before release. From its inky hue to its dense palate and extracted nose of leather, spiced plum liqueur, and coffee bean, we’re convinced! This is an opulent soul. Grainy tannins and a beefy body extend to an earthy core.
Aromas of sweet strawberries with citrus and floral undertones, as well as blueberries and hot stones. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a flavorful, lightly austere finish. This shows tone and texture. A blend of garnacha, tempranillo, monastrell and carinena. Drink or hold.
