Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Note:

Poignant aromas of ink, earth, and pencil lead leap from the glass. What follows is a remarkably supple mélange of cocoa powder, lingonberry, and raspberry compote, guided by dusty tannins and minerality. A long finish highlights complexity and makes this a memorable Spanish red.
