    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Mazuelo.

    Intense red cherry color. Clean and bright. Complex aromas of stewed black berries with spicy touches of black pepper and mineral notes. Potent and fleshy, dominating its roundness in mouth which is due to its fine tannins provided by the ripe berries and its exceptional barrel-ageing. A long and very persistent finish.

    This wine is a great match with grilled and stewed meat. It also goes well with oven-baked fish or fish in sauce as well as cold meats and strong, dry cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2004 Reserva is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Mazuelo aged for 18 months in French and American oak. Dark crimson-colored, it reveals an alluring nose of cedar, spice box, tobacco, black cherry, and blackberry. On the palate it displays considerable finesse along with plenty of ripe, spicy red and black fruit, a silky texture, and excellent balance. This lengthy effort will continue to evolve for another 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020.
