Seductively perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry cherry-cola incense and Asian spices. Juicy energetic red and dark berry flavors possess serious power but carry no excess fat and show no rough edges. Finishes spicy and very long echoing the dark berry notes. This is already delicious.

The entry-level wine the 2008 Predicador is made up of 96% Tempranillo with the balance Garnacha and Viura aged for 16 months in second use French oak. Fragrant notes of smoke spice box incense tobacco and assorted red and black fruits inform the nose of this relatively forward savory well-proportioned lengthy effort. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will provide optimum drinking from 2013 to 2020. Benjamin Romeo's winemaking credentials include over 15 years as head winemaker at Bodegas Artadi one of Rioja's greatest producers and two 100 point scores for his 2004 and 2005 Contador.

A powerful nose with asphalt blackberry and anise aromas surrounding a faint and classic tempranillo core of dusty strawberry. The palate is more resolved with good minerality bright acidity and an array of black and red fruit flavors. This is so dynamic right now but it will be even better in a decade or so. Enjoy now through 2030.
