Our roots go all the way back to Cariñena in 1903, the year in which Mr. Ignacio Marín founded the Winery. Since then, the successive generations of the family saga have dedicated all their knowledge and experience to a highly considered work process that begins in the vineyard and ends in each one of the bottles issued by our Winery to the five Continents.
For an older wine it's ripe and fruity but with a slightly bitter finish. Good dry complexity.
Brick-red color, light body. Spicy, earthy stone-fruit with hints of anise on the nose, very dry, soft, tart cherry palette, really nice finish with notes of oak and brambly fruit. A good deal for a gran reserva with a some age on it.
