From the bottle:
"Ercavio is made with grapes from old bushvines located on the high plateau of La Mesa de Ocana, Toledo and was barrel aged for 6 months in new French oak barrels.
The 2011 Bodegas Mas Que Vinos Ercavio Tempranillo Roble begins with pleasant aromas of smoky dark fruit, cola, licorice and black pepper. When tasting the wine starts fruity but then a surprising amount of earth, coffee, tobacco and chocolate kicks in mid-palate and dominates all the way through the finish. This is not a wine for fans for fruit bombs, but it is quite good and offers a very nice change of pace. It ends dry and grippy with lots of mocha notes. If you enjoy earthy wines, this is one you'll love.
