100% Tempranillo, manually harvested from on average 30-year-old vines located at the foot of the Sierra Cantabria near the villages of Brinas, Haro and San Vicente de La Sonsierra. 100% destemming, 9 day fermentation with twice daily pumping and a total 20 day maceration period with grape skins. Aged 13 months in 60% French, 35% American and 5% central European oak casks, bottled and aged for a minimum of 12 months before release.
Intense dark cherry red colour. Complex, powerful berry fruit nose with hints of vanilla, cocoa and spice. Velvety softness with great depth of ripe, rich blackberry/spicy fruit on the palate, soft tannins, outstanding nobility, good structure, with a harmonic, balanced development climaxing in an elegant, full and very persistent aftertaste.
This wine goes well with food particularly Lamb shank, stews, rice, game or poultry.
