Crimson red with ruby red hues, it displays soft aromas of toasted oak and vanilla. Structured and smooth it showcases a savoury maturity and elegant tannins. Good balance between fruits and spice in its long and elegant finish.
Wine Spectator 89 points - Notes of toasted spices and warm brick suffuse this traditional red, accenting cherry, berry, leafy and vanilla flavors that stay focused, thanks to lively acidity. Expressive. Drink now through 2015. 300,000 cases made. From Spain.
