Ripe and modern, with a bold color and no shortage of oak. But with clean black fruit, integration and great structure, the wine handles all the wood thrown at it. Expect black fruit, toast and wood spice on the palate, followed by a stylish, meaty finish. Ripe and complete, and drinkable now through 2010 at least.
Bramble, cherry cola and snappy red berry aromas announce this as a secure, snappy wine. The flavor profile is round, genial and nicely balanced between plum and berry and vanilla/mocha notes. Like most Sierra Cantabria reds, this touches all the bases and should elicit a smile of satisfaction.
