     Vinous, 92 pts

    " Saturated violet. Powerful aromas of dark berry liqueur, potpourri and vanilla, plus woodsmoke and mineral overtones. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Finishes with sharp clarity and very good length, leaving lavender, mocha and cola notes behind. Drinking window: 2022 - 2028."

    Rafael Canizares

    Born in 1967 in Las Mesas, Cuenca, Rafael's life has always been linked to wine - His great grand-parents passed their winemaking heritage through generations, which Rafael is currently doing himself. 

    Rafael studied oenology in Tomelloso (Ciudad Real) in 1988 and has ever since kept the same philosophy: "Mi job is to achieve the highest quality, from growing the grape to bottling the wine. My principles are baed in consistency and hard work"
