About

"This red delivers intense flavors in a plush texture. Cherry, berry and spice notes mingle over pillowy yet supportive tannins, as bright acidity keeps this focused and fresh. Still youthful, with plenty of stuffing to age. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases imported. -TM" (04/12)

Product Description:

WINE:
"80% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha, and 10% Mazuelo. Garnet ruby red-brick glints. Nose of ripe fruit with mineral notes, leather, and vanilla. The mouth brings out the wine's concentration through its noteworthy tannins which are well balanced and flavorful." -Winery

VINIFICATION:
"After 20 days of maceration in stainless steel tanks at 86 degrees F, the wine is transferred to new tanks where it goes through malolactic fermentation naturally. Then it is placed into barrels of American and French oak where it is aged for 12 months." -Winery

RIOJA DOC:
"Rioja is the oldest and most prestigious Denominacion de Origen in all of Spain. The Tempranillo grape, considered native from this zone, is the most widely planted varietal and is recognized internationally for its Spanish origin. Tempranillo's big reds are highly sought out worldwide." -Winery
