Energetic and focused, this red delivers cherry and cranberry flavors that are zippy and fresh, with notes of licorice, smoke and game adding depth. Light, firm tannins and citrusy acidity impart liveliness. Drink now through 2021. 1,700 cases made. –TM

Extremely bright aromas of crushed dark fruits such as raspberry and blueberry. Mineral and stone undertones too. Full and refined with extremely polished tannins that give beauty and form to this wine. 24 months in used French barrels. 98% tempranillo and 2% graciano. Drink or hold.

Opaque ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of dark berry liqueur, potpourri and Indian spices, with a building vanilla undertone. Supple, open-knit raspberry and floral pastille flavors show very good depth and breadth, with juicy acidity adding finesse and spine. The spicy, long finish leaves a refreshingly bitter berry skin note behind. Aged in 30% new French oak.-JR
