Deep cherry color with shades of shiny red. To the nose, aromas
of berries and licorice balanced by hints of clove, rosemary, thyme
and tobacco leaves coming from the oak cask ageing. To the palate,
it shows its elegance thanks to a gentle tannin providing roundness
and freshness. The wine tastes for long in the palate, with an
interestingly complex aftertaste. Game and red meats are ideal
pairings for this wine.

Made from a selection of the best grapes from our Rioja Alta
vineyards around the village of Villalba that were hand harvested
in small 30 kg boxes. Before starting the alcoholic fermentation,
the bunches of grapes were cooled down and kept at a low
temperature for some hours in order to improve our control over
fermentation without using any additives and to achieve an optimum
extraction. The fermentation took place in a combination of oak
vats and stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine
was then aged in both American and French new and used oak casks
for two years, followed by another two years in bottle prior to its
release in the market.
