An excellent reserva from the calcareous soils of the Finca Valera where a little old vine Merlot enhances the old vine Tempranillo and they are both in turn enhanced by careful oak selection.

Tasting notes

95% Tempranillo & 5% Merlot.

16 months in French oak (60%) and American oak (40%) then 24 months in bottle

Intense black cherry colour with ruby highlights.

Ripe, perfectly mature black fruits with further complexity from the oak, rich in nuances, with a hint of terroir.

Broad on the palate, fleshy, harmonious, concentrated, with ripe tannins, hints of spice, lots of fruit and persistent.
