Full, meaty aromas of blackberry and cassis are oaky but controlled. This Tempranillo feels tight and tannic, with raw-wood grip. Oaky flavors of bacon integrate with cassis and blackberry, while the finish on this chunky, ripe, modern blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Syrah is chocolaty and tannic. Drink through 2020.
