14.5% vol

Region: Ribera Del Duero

Variety: Tempranillo


Produced by Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro located in the heart of Ribera del Duero, founded in the early 1990´s by Florentino Arzuaga.

Now with over 150 hectares of vines with a combination of tempanillo, cabernet sauvignon and merlot.

The wine itself has wonderful full body with great concentration resulting it very pleasing flavour of dark cherry fruit. It is a fresh young wine with gentle and engaging balance from the 6 months in French and American oak.

I found this to be very engaging and seeing it was a cool night suited the evening almost perfectly.

I had the wine with some grill meats but would suit a hearty stew or your favourite tapas.
