Dense crimson with purple hues at the rim.
Distinctly Cabernet! The nose is a complex amalgam of blackcurrants, plums, cassis, black olives and chocolate.
The palate is deep, complex and brooding with layers of flavour. Blackberry, dark plum, mulberry and cassis are supported by notes of mocha and graphite. The rich and round mid-palate is backed up with a core of minerality and an abundance of super fine tannins.
The finish is long and pronounced with classic balance and structure.

Deep ruby in the glass. Ripe berry fruit aromas reflect the hot, wet vintage. A lush, plump, soft and supple wine that seeps across the palate, with fleshy fruit notes of prunes and stewed cherries. A hint of spice finishes with structured silky fine tannins and a soft warm finish.

Highly aromatic with black fruit and ripe sloe notes. Very mineral that, together with the vanilla, spice and tobacco notes from the barrel, give a great character to this wine. The Tempranillo variety is very emphasized and well incorporated with the barrel. Oily, rich and intense with a sweetness right across the mouth, showing great finesse. Well-balanced acidity with the alcohol, with the typical Valpiedra freshness predominant. A long, cool and mineral finish, with a touch of fine woods.
