Presented in a fresh, modern style, Cepa 21 found a sleek balance in the 2015 vintage. It contrasts an exuberantly fruity, rich cherry aroma with bosky, foresty notes of cloud-ear mushrooms and tree bark, turning the fresh fruit completely savory in the end. The wine feels dense without excess weight, making it approachable now; it should be satisfying over the next five years.

Firm and balanced, this red has a sleek texture, with restrained but harmonious flavors of black cherry, licorice, mineral and smoke. Well-integrated tannins impart backbone, while balsamic acidity keeps this fresh. Drink now through 2025. 16,666 cases made.
