Ships today if ordered within 11 hrs 21 mins

A blend of Listan Negro and Tintilla from Spain’s Canary Islands, a region gaining a lot of attention due to its unique geography and geology with many vineyards planted at high elevations on terraced slopes carved into volcanic hillsides.

Medium-bodied with a rustic volcanic minerality that supports juicy fruit character. A nice balance of spicy black pepper and smoke in the background. Those who enjoy Spanish Mencia or French Gamay will like this wine. Silky and smooth on the palate, this is a great food wine. Only 222 cases produced. Organic Farming Practices. 

Excellent wine for BBQ’d red meats! “

Red Blends Wines

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

In 1977, D. Antonio Ramírez bought a small piece of land in the hills of La Lechuza (a small town on the island of Gran Canaria) known locally as “El Frontón”, where he planted some vegetables and vines for the family’s needs. In 1999 his two sons, Pedro and Antonio, decided to bottle some wine to sell locally. The vineyards are high-elevation and in many cases on terraced slopes.
