Tasting Notes:
Is a wonderful expression of the power and depth of Ribera del Duero Tempranillo. Dense and inky purple in colour, it exhibits complex aromas on the nose a heady concoction of earthiness, dark berry fruit and hints of coffee and spice. On the palate the primary flavors are enriched by toasty oak and well integrated tannins to create an opulent, generous mouth feel.
