With 14% Cabernet and Merlot added to prime Tempranillo, this wine jabs early with toasty oak, forest floor and roasted berry aromas, and then follows it up with full-bodied blackberry fruit accented by tobacco, leather and warm earth. It has body but also a firm, acidic core; and the tannins are totally manageable. Already drinking well but will improve over the next two to five years.
