Tasting Notes
80% Tempranillo from vineyards in the foothills of the Cantabria range and in the low course of the Najerilla river (Uruñuela, Torremontalbo) and 20% Garnacha from the high Najerilla (Badarán). The grapes are handpicked into small picking bins and brought to the winery to naturally ferment in stainless fermenters and left on skins for 3-4 weeks. The must is pressed and the free run juice is racked to predominantly new American oak barrels where it rests for 12 months. Clean and shiny, with a red ruby color. High intensity in the nose, displaying the red and dark fruit character of the Tempranillo with fine oak nuances: cassis, liquorice, red fruits and vanilla. Its refreshing acidity makes it very easy drinking, retaining a “vino fino de Haro” (“fine wine of Haro”) personality. Rounded and balanced in the palate, fruit over oak, silky tannins and persistent red fruit aftertaste.
