"This is the first vintage of the 2005 Ombra, the personal project of Capcanes winemaker, Cisco Perello. It is equal parts Garnacha, Carinena, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged in barrel for 9 months. Opaque purple-colored, it offers a perfume of spice box, cedar, tobacco, and black cherry. Firm on the palate, with sweet fruit and a racy style, the wine has excellent balance and should evolve nicely for 2-3 years. It should drink well through 2017."
