This blend of 80% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo (Carignan), and 10% Graciano has a medium intensity nose of wood spice, red cherry, touches of sour cherry and oak. The medium-full bodied palate has very good weight to the fruit and has fruity, wood spice, cherry, and currant characters. Acids are juicy, while present tannins are well-integrated. Very good finish length. Tasted Feb/2020.
