American oak was a big part of Spain’s wine renaissance, bringing the perfect balance to bold Tempranillo. This tremendous wine busts out with ripe berry and cherry aromas on a bed of earth and leather. Toast, wood and tobacco flavors frame the plum and berry fruit on a high-energy, full-bodied palate. The finish is spicy and long enough to carry you to the next, satisfying sip.
Ripe berry and cherry aromas meld with earth, chocolate and leather on the nose. The full-bodied palate is energized by lemon and supportive acidity, with flavors of toast, wood grain and tobacco in addition to plum and berry fruit. The finish is long in spice and cocoa flavors. MICHAEL SCHACHNER
