Last year we took home the bronze medal at the San Diego Toast of the Coast wine competition with this wine. This year are sure it will be at least Gold, if not Double Gold.
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.
