This wine is produced from old, bush-vines of Tempranillo grown at 2,300 feet of elevation in the sub-region of Rioja Alta. The vines are planted in sloping vineyards on calcerous-clay soils. The grapes were hand-harvested in early October and were fermented in stainless steel tanks, followed by a few months of aging in oak barrels, keeping a balance between fresh fruit flavors and complexity from oak.
