Grapes: Tempranillo 80%, Graciano 10%, Garnacha 10%
Farming: Practicing organic
Terroir: All the fruit comes from the Rioja alta zone near the village of Abalos at the foot hills of the Sierra Cantabria. High elevation calcarious clay soil
Winemaking: spontaneous fermentation in concrete vats. 12 months in used French oak barrels in various sizes with most being larger formats.
Notes: Inky ruby. Spicy cherry and blackberry aromas are complicated by smoked meat and baking spices. Lush black and blue fruit flavors are supple, nicely focused and pure, with silky tannins adding support. Finishes with impressive mineral lift and persistence. Strikes a near ideal balance of depth and finesse
