Winemaker John J. Gabriel Notes
The grapes were handpicked at perfect ripeness and full of flavor then sorted and crushed. Fermentation took place in small 1 ton bins and the wines were fermented to dryness. The Graciano extracted its color beautifully in the very early stages of fermentation and showed great promise; full bodied, great mid palate but without the tannin structure that a Cabernet Sauvignon would have. The wine was aged 17 months in small French oak barrels. Tasting notes: This Spanish Rioja style blend consists of Tempranillo, and Graciano. A very jammy blend and probably my favorite as I love both wines as a individual varietals; the Tempranillo for its earthiness and the Graciano for its full body and well rounded palate. The blend of the two just totally ...more... makes it. A deep ruby color with a nose filled with black fruit, earthy minerals and sweet spice. This is a full bodied rounded blend with rich layers of caramel and fudge that is smooth but complex with a lingering finish of toffee and tobacco. A very food friendly wine that also pairs great with marinated beef and beef stews, or try rich chocolate desserts.
