Tasting Notes

Cherry red with a hint of purple, a fruitiness in the nose, which leads, little by little, to suggestions of licorice and balsam, giving way to an expressive array of fruit which spreads through the mouth like fresh silk with noble balance.

About the Winery

Dehesa de los Canonigos

The winery, founded in 1988 sits on the banks of the Duero river. It consists of a set of small buildings which gather around a country house that still serves as a residence for Luis Sanz, the current owner, and his relatives. The restored buildings still retain the thick adoble walls once used for keeping out the heat and now an excellent insulation for the temperature control needed for wine-making and aging. The white-washed walls, the low buildings and the U-shaped architectural structure give the buildings a Basque air reminiscent of its farming history.
