Inspired by the wines of Rioja, Spain, Tempranillo and Graciano comprise the backbone of this blend. Tempranillo provides pretty aromas of plum and fig, while also contributing tannins that provide structure without coarseness. Graciano, a typical blending partner in Rioja, provides intense, dark color, vibrant acidity, and notes of dark, concentrated fruits. The Tempranillo component was aged in once-used American oak barrels to round out the aromas and impart complexity to the palate.
