Winemakers Tasting Notes

This gorgeous blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon displays rich aromas of fresh-baked berry cobbler and holiday spices, along with subtle notes of oregano and fresh mint. On the plate, it is bold and mouth filling, with rich layers of blueberry and blackberry and intriguing hints of mahogany and spice. Firm, dusty tannins add depth and nuance to long, balanced finish.
