Dry, leathery and pungent, with plenty of pepper and earth to the nose. The blend is 60% Garnacha and the rest Cariñena, and it pushes surprisingly fresh raspberry flavors along with a fine undercurrent of oak. Racy and cleansing, with hints of cola. A good '03 for early drinking; no need to cellar. Imported by Haro Imports.
