90%temp 10%graciano with 4 yrs in American oak. Massively elegant yet broody and intense, smokey red fruit with notes of truffle, caramel, toffee apple covered in balsamic vinegar with a touch of hazelnut (very light). In the mouth this is a gem, a great acidic lift of umami instilled red berry fruit that is still unctuous, mouth watering and infinitely food friendly with a savoury, long finish. Outstanding.

2001 vintage first bottle corked second bottle from six pack was the best wine I've had from the bodega. Can't wait for the 2004 release.

A beautiful ruby reddish purple color. Spice, cedar, black tea, leather, mushroom and herb notes on a gorgeous frame of vibrant red fruit. Lighter in body than I expected, with plenty of acid but superbly balanced, and the tannins are soft and fully integrated. Nice finish, lasting at least 45 seconds. Elegant and memorable.
