monastrell, 26% tempranillo, 11% garnacha, 6% syrah and 5% each of syrah and cabernet sauvignon): Inky ruby. Bitter cherry and blackberry on the spice-accented nose. Juicy, fruit-driven and easy to drink, offering fresh dark fruit flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Finishes with good energy and length, the spicy note repeating." -
