Here's a biodynamically farmed, expertly crafted red comprised of 50% Tempranillo, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Syrah and Malbec, all co-fermented. The Wine Advocate loved its aromas of violets, red and black cherries, hints of apricots and even some orange peel. The palate is medium to full-bodied with fine, chalky tannins, moderate acidity and a slight bitterness in the finish. This is a superb, serious, mineral red that should improve in bottle." "
