Dark in color with a mild nose of black berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some rich jammie black berries to match the nose. Blueberries comes through. On the finish the wine displays some firm acidity and some tannins. This is definitely a more fruit forward tempranillo. The complexity of this wine is surprising given it’s low price. I would give it an 88-89. Quite nice.

Smooth-textured, layered, and remarkably rich on the palate for its humble price, this lengthy effort will drink nicely over the next 5-6 years. Score – 90.
