"The finest of the Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are hand selected for this wine, which spends a year in new French and American oak. Delicate aromas of black fruit find an intriguing smoky backdrop that’s sure to draw you in to see what’s behind the curtain. The palate is ripe and structured with sweet, elegant tannins and a quiet subtlety that will make this a versatile pairing partner for Friday night feasts. "
