This 100% Tempranillo comes from their own vineyards in Finca Los Almendros, Rioja Baja. It ages 6 months in American oak casks and another 6 months in the bottle 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.
Food Ideas: Moroccan style braised vegetables, korean short ribs, chorizo and cheese tortilla with mixed green salad
