Cuatro implies four grapes blended together, and the nose on this Tempranillo/Cab/Merlot/Syrah mix is a bit leathery and tight. In the mouth, it's linear and borderline lean, with plum and bramble flavors backstopped by tomato and herb notes. Juicy, intense and solid, but not overly generous or evolved. Typical Somontano red wine.
