The 20th release of our flagship Tempranillo continues with the tradition of quality and excellence expected from our estate’s highly regarded terroir. This outstanding vintage displays a bouquet of expressive high-toned fruits and cedar. Scents of oak lead into a robust palate of ripe cherry, dried fig, tobacco and savory overtones. This youthful Tempranillo is mouth filling with a lovely supple texture, bright acidity, nice balance, and seamless tannins. If you are planning on enjoying in the near term we recommend decanting. This wine can be cellared for up to 10 –12 years for increased complexity.

Tasting Notes
Our flagship Tempranillo continues the tradition of quality and excellence through careful selection of the finest barrels. Rich Blackberry, violets, mocha, spice box and well-defined tannins unfold in velvety layers through the lengthy finish. While delicious now, this wine has the structure to improve for 10 or more years and offer a long plateau of maturity.
