A blend of 78% Tempranillo from 30 year old vines and 22% Garnacha. The two grapes are vinified and aged seperately, 36 months in barrel for the Tempranillo and 30 months for the Garnacha, before blending together. A powerful nose of balsamic, liquorice, vanilla, stewed strawberry and overripe cherry. The palate is silky smooth with further flavours of leather and nutmeg. Try pairing with roast lamb or smoked cheese.

      Oak on the nose, followed by black cherry, vanilla, and red fruit. Bold and complex. Leather, black currant, dark chocolate, plum, cedar, bing cherry, and toasted nuts. Very dry.

    Deep magenta. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black raspberry, cherry cola, potpourri, tobacco and exotic spices, plus a smoky mineral flourish. Sweet and broad in the mouth, offering lush red and blue fruit, spicecake, mocha and coconut flavors that firm up on the back half. Finishes extremely long and spicy, with resonating florality, gently chewy tannins and lingering oak spice notes.
