Concentrated cassis, black cherries and some herbaceousness on the nose and palate.
A cold, wet Winter in 2009 allowed for the lovely, even budding of the vineyards during Spring, and the warm, sunny days that followed in Summer resulted in great flavour and colour development in the berries.
Full fruit flavours and soft tannins, together with good aromatics and ideal acidity, made 2010 an excellent vintage.

Bottled in the spring following harvest to preserve the inherent freshness of its style. 2013 saw some extremely variable weather conditions (a cold winter followed by a wet spring and summer, giving way to a very hot August) but its wines are well balanced with ripe acidity and strong character. The nose opens with white flowers and apple blossom notes, with a light touch of white peaches. The wine is both fresh and rounded in the mouth, reminiscent of ripe apricot or peach, with a clean, long lasting finish.

Tinto is a harmonious blend of sunny fruits, vanilla and spice.
Ruby in colour the palate has rich jammy fruits with slight hints of sweetness, vanilla and spice on the finish; evidence of the ten months it has spent in new American oak. Excellent with sausages, cottage pie and grilled chops.
Despite its status as a vin joven (young wine), VII Tinto is made with great care from 95% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo grapes and benefits from 10 months in American oak barrels with six months in the bottle.
