The wines have been most impressive: a barrel-fermented, oaky white viura; a tempranillo aged in American oak; a second tempranillo blended, Bordeaux-style, with cabernet and merlot; a third tempranillo blended, Rhone-style, with carignan and grenache; and, finally, a tempranillo reserva aged for five years in French oak.
The wine is a mixture of tempranillo, garnacha (as grenache is known in Spain) and viura, the white grape of Rioja.
I've done a couple of blind tastings this year with monastrell and blends of monatrell with things like cabernet, merlot, tempranillo, syrah, even some viura.
It does have 30\% viura, so there is a fair bit of white wine in there.
