"Made from Syrah, Tempranillo, and Grenache, this wine is big, rich and complex. The aromas carry through to the palate; raspberry, blueberry pie, tobacco, maple syrup, soy sauce, crushed autumn leaves, and black pepper are all wrapped up in a nicely structured package. It has a meaty, earthy component, and bold chewy tannins. The finish is full and fleshy, long and silky."
"92 Points- Wine Advocate. The entry level 2008 Mauro is composed of Tempranillo and. It is a full bodied, rich, racy offering with layered fruit, a vibrant acid structure, and savory black fruit flavors. On the palate all components are nicely integrated coming together in a long, pure finish. It will evolve for 2 to 3 years and drink nicely through 2023."
