100% Tempranillo, aged in French/American barres for 6 months. An opaque ruby colour. Powerful, plentiful, seductive blackberry and blackcurrant aromas including baking spices and floral qualities. Soft, silky and impressively pure, with vibrant dark berry flavours and fine-grained tannins. Surprisingly juicy and persistent with excellent saturation and clarity on the palate.

Bright purple. An expressive bouquet evokes black and blue fruit preserves, star anise, mocha and fresh flowers. Sweet blueberry and boysenberry flavors show very good depth and energy, with a subtle peppery note adding lift and bite. The finish is focused and long, ending on a note of bitter cherry.
