About

Rating:

92

(55% garnacha, 30% tempranillo, 10% graciano and 5% mazuelo) Inky purple. The polar opposite of the Vidau, displaying scents of dark berry liqueur, incense and vanilla, plus notes of star anise and violet. Lush and creamy in texture, with velvety dark fruit flavors and mounting smokiness. This also aged in 100% new oak but here the wood makes a much stronger statement. Finishes sweet, broad and seriously long. The contrast between these two wines is striking.
