Notes of ripe black and red fruit (blackberry and plum). Spicy, balsamic oak and mineral nuances reminiscent of graphite. Warm inviting nose with undercurrents of licorice and sweet liqueurs.
A hearty and powerful wine. Ripe, sweet tannins with a good acidity that balances out the alcohol, very pleasant and long-lasting.
Tempranillo (88%), Cabernet Sauvignon (6%), Merlot (4.5%) and Malbec (1.5%). Harvested from a variety of 120 vineyards throughout 32 towns in Ribera del Duero, all between 750 and 950 m of altitude
The winter of 2014 – 2015 was cold and dry. Very warm spring with temperatures in May reaching above 30 degrees C, with a lot of sunshine. Summer was the second hottest since 1961, only being surpassed by 2003. Summer was also very dry. The harvest began on September 23, after an unusually cool month and ended on October 16 with the picking of Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes arrived healthy due to the good weather and no rain, however, with yields well below projections.
12 months in 225 liter Quercus Pyrenaica barrels, from selected forests.
Bottled in early April 2017.

Ribera de Duero
During winemaking, exclusively gravity fed systems were used to be as gentle with the wine as possible.
