A silkiness masks depth and density in this polished red. Cherry and berry flavors are ripe and juicy, backed by vanilla, spice and floral notes. Well-integrated tannins keep this focused through the toasty finish. Drink now through 2026. 29,166 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

The flagship wine that carries the name of the project is currently the 2016 Cepa 21, produced with youngish Tempranillo matured in French barrique for 12 months. It has some spicy and smoky notes from the élevage in oak, which gives it a showy profile. It's ripe without excess with a sweetness of fruit that coats the palate and makes it a bit jammy. There are plenty of tannins to stand up to food. 420,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018.

Big blueberry nose and generous tannins make this a bold wine and there’s a nice freshness on the finish. If this was more polished, it would rate even higher. Drink or hold.
