Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 b.b. (Big Bang) is a blend of 50% Garnacha, 40% Tempranillo, and 10% Graciano. The Graciano and Tempranillo components were aged in barrel for 9 months. It displays aromas of white pepper, spice box, tobacco, cassis, and black cherry leading to a medium-bodied, moderately complex wine with ample sweet fruit, good balance, and a pleasure-bent personality. Drink this outstanding value over the next 5-6 years
