"The 16th release of our flagship Tempranillo continues the tradition of a fine wine with structure and ageability. This wine was crafted by careful selection of the finest barrels from our best lots. The deep color and compelling aromas allude to the intensity of flavors that follow. Rich blackberry, violets, mocha, spice box, smoke, and well defined tannins unfold on the palate in velvety layers through the lengthy finish.
This wine will continue to improve for eight to ten years and offers a long plateau of maturity. Pair with traditional Spanish Cochinillo Asado (roast suckling pig) for a memorable meal."
