    100+ year old ungrafted and organic Listan Negro is splashed with 10% Castellana Negra in this singular wine, showcasing Tenerife's volcanic soils and altitude. Nine months of aging in concrete and neutral French oak has well-framed this lighter red, layered with grapefruit, juicy plum, anise, tobacco and a gentle dusting of pink peppercorns that linger on the saline finish. Firm tannins leave an impression of finesse and grace. Inherently confident, and drinking beautifully now. Allow a wave of youthful reduction to blow off before enjoying.
