"... a blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Merlot. The wine has a terrific fragrance of unsmoked cigar tobacco, lavender, blackcurrants and kirsch liqueur. It is long, ripe, savory, full-bodied and multi-dimensional. This opaque, ruby/purple wine is a stunner and a great value. Drink it over the next 5+ years."Rating 91 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (March 2016)
