Rich and robust
Deep purple in colour this wine is lifted and spicy. The palate does not hold back, deep, spicy potpourri and abundant tannins will see many years reward.

Full crimson-purple; low-yielding estate vines have produced a plush, rich and deep-flavoured Tempranillo, matured in American oak (taking a leaf out of Rioja), the tannins sufficient for extended cellaring. 94 POINTS
