D.O.C. Rioja 

Grapes: 94% Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha, 2% Viura, 1% Graciano.

Wine-making: The grapes are selected in the vineyard and then are given a cold soak for 3 days in stainless steel, followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature for 6 days with a gentle pump over to extract colour and tannin and a further two weeks of post-fermentative skin contact.

Ageing: Aged in 70% American oak and 30% French oak barrel. A third part of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation in the barrels.

Tasting Notes: Intense aroma of ripe fruits, black cherry, blackcurrant and plum, together with the tertiary aromas of oak ageing: cocoa, sweet spices. The palate is smooth and supple, with mountain herbs and orange peel notes reappearing. Long, elegant finish. A wine which can already be enjoyed, but will no doubt improve over the next few years.

Pairing: Grilled red meats, roasted red meats and small game.

Alcohol: 14.1%.
