This blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo/Graciano has mature characters of red berry, earth, wet forest floor and wood spice aromas and flavours, with more sweet forest floor notes coming through on the medium bodied palate. Nicely balanced with very good acidity and refined tannins that have some grip. Long finish has more wet floor notes. Should develop further into the mid-20's. Tasted Sept/2019.
