Plush and polished, this red delivers ripe blackberry and currant flavors, supported by well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Notes of dark chocolate, licorice and blood orange add interest. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2024. 1,100 cases made, 400 cases imported.

A warm nose is a bit unsettled and strained due to high alcohol and full ripeness of Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. A heavy, almost soupy mouthfeel is almost over the line, while dark plum, blackberry and coffee flavors conclude on a finish that's so ripe and weighty that it's arguably lazy; drink only if rich and ripe reds are your thing.
