Gran Reserva Tempranillo 2014
90 Points - Wine Spectator
This wine is a deep purple color that turns to an intense brick red as it swirls in your glass. Mouthwatering aromas of cocoa, anise, dark cherry, and forest canopy jump out at you. This is truly an evolving drinking experience that should be enjoyed slowly and purposely. Initial flavors of dark cherry, dark chocolate, and cedar succumb to secondary flavors of cinnamon, rich leather, and ripe blackberry. Close your eyes and enjoy the supple tannins and extremely long and satisfying finish. Liz suggest pairing this with a petit fillet with a mushroom risotto. The barrels that we aged our Gran Reserva in were hand selected by our winemaker for their aging potential. A wine 5 plus years in the making and a vision of Markus and Liz for years!
