Additional Information
TASTING NOTE

When poured, the wine is dense with a deep, black-cherry colour and vibrant highlights in the rim. The aroma is intense and very complex, the red fruits blending with rosemary, thyme, chocolate and dark-roasted notes. This is an old-vine Tempranillo which offers all the fruit and smooth tannins of a well-aged wine. It is dense and sweet, with a long, very harmonious finish

Food Pairing
Pâté, porcini mushrooms, red meat, chuletillas al sarmiento (a typical Riojan dish of lamb chops barbecued over vine leaves), barbecued fish, game, stews, desserts and chocolate.
