Intense, ruby red colour. Expressive bouquet with notes of raspberries, bilberries and cherries, enlivened by a touch of spice and a depth of vanilla. Charming fruit in the mouth with good structure that highlights concentrated flavours and fleshy tannins. Nice complexity on tasting resulting in good length. This Crianza is made from our best "cuvées" from the 2008 vintage and conserves in full the character derived from top quality grapes.

Wine SpectatorThis focused red is subtle but harmonious, with well-integrated flavors of black cherry, toast, herbs and spice layered over fine tannins. Crisp and fresh. Drink now through 2014.

Wine EnthusiastStandard cherry and plum aromas are fresh, clean and unadulterated by heavy oak, leather or earth notes. Feels clean and dry, with nice but standard red-berry and plum flavors. Has good flow and feel, with a light dusting of spice on the finish.
