Tasting Notes:

The wine shows bright and full Garnacha notes of ripe black fruits, as well as raisins, blueberries, and plums, and it's even showing some overripeness. The mouth and finish are warm and relatively gentle.

The vineyards are divided between the chalky soild of alluvial terraces of the Ebro River at 1,200 feet in elevation and the more complex soils of the hillside vineyards on the Moncayo mountain range at 1,950 feet in elevation.
