Good value for a bear of a wine. It's 80% Tempranillo and 20% Cabernet, and it certainly has teeth. Stocky aromas of blackberry, bacon and tobacco are inviting, while the palate is saturated, tannic and full of black fruit, bacon and brown sugar. Finishes with weight and coffee/chocolate flavors. Not a shy wine.
