This Tempranillo-Mourvèdre-Syrah blend is smooth and captivating. The cherry-flavored fruit sports many herbal highlights, a vanilla streak, and tannins that bring an impression of soft leather. The partial fermentation in French oak brings interesting chocolatey molé flavors to the back of the throat.
