This is a bronze medal winner at the San Diego Toast of the Coast wine competition.
It starts off with a strong hazelnut aroma, followed by blackberry, and honey with slight oak accents. The taste is long and wonderful on the tongue. Tempranillo that is a deep, ruby-purple color with a strong nose filled with black fruit of blackberry, hints of hazelnut, minerals, earth and a touch of sweet spice, and honey with slight oak accents. The palate is full-bodied and slightly tannic. Vanilla and maple syrup linger on the finish.
