Winemaker Notes

Our reserve program is defined by quality and terroir. Our fourth reserve Tempranillo was sourced from the dry, sandy loam of South East Block. The aromas include expressive ripe blackberry, boysenberry jam, lavender, graphite, and leather. The flavors are intense and transcend a huge spectrum from ripe currants and plums, to savory spices. Perfectly balanced acidity, integrated oak and concentrated fruit culminate to a tannic, lengthy finish. This wine will improve in the cellar for ten to twelve years.  For a sumptuous feast, pair with the famous el lechazo of Aranda de Duero.

Also available in a six pack wood case box.
