This 100% Tempranillo comes from their Carboneras estate, growing 850 metres above sea level, the highest vineyard in the appellation. It ages 12 months in new american oak casks producing a wine with pretty floral on the nose along with red and dark cherry fruit. More of the same on the palate mingling with earthy spice, a touch of black pepper, good acidity and fairly mild tannins on the finish. A few swirls in the glass or 15 to 20 minutes of air should do the trick.

Food Ideas: Moroccan style braised vegetables, korean short ribs, chorizo and cheese tortilla with mixed green salad
