I've seen the bottle for several weeks now, but decided to finally pick it up and try it. It is a very interesting blend as the tart and dry of the Tempranillo offsets the lush of the Cabernet Sauvignon; it's like a couple that you think are romantically doomed to fail, but they have the most wonderful relationship out there.

This wine is silky, but juxtaposed with tannins; it has blackberry and cherry that is contrasted by spice. This is a wine that you to a lover during an argument over dinner that will just get them to shut up and give you a minute while this titillates their taste buds and somewhat befounds their brains.

This wine is a winner; I can't wait to taste the white.
