Tasting notes
Color - Intense, bright cherry red. Bouquet - Aromatic and complex, with notes of tobacco, cedar and leather against a background of ripe fruit, jam and spices. Taste - Powerful yet velvety, with flavors of rich red fruit, licorice and minerals and smooth, ripe tannins.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 89 points (Mar 31 1992)
Youthful and powerful, with a deep garnet color, fresh plum and tar aromas and round, rich fruit and spice flavors. Drink now.

Wine maker notes
Grapes are de-stemmed and undergo fermentation at 86F. The grapes then goes through a 27-day maceration period with light pumping over, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wines age for 28 months in oak (80% American and 20% French) and spend 36 months aging in the bottle before they are released, for a total ageing of 64 months.

Technical notes
85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo

Food pairing
Flavorful fish like tuna , red meat, game and medium cured cheeses such as Manchego and emmental.
