Powerful on the nose with a great variety of red and forest fruit aromas (vanilla, liquorice…) and balsamic (eucalyptus) given by the great wood. Liquorice, cedar and smoke aromas, typical of Cabernet Sauvignon variety. It is soft in the mouth, with a silky, sweet and nice acidity which makes it very fresh, with a long finish and an aftertaste reminiscent of berries and vanilla.

Bodegas Yllera were founded at the begining of the 70s by the brothers Jesús and Pepe Yllera; the fifth generation of a family dedicated to the wine known as "Los Curros". They started to elaborate wines with Verdejo grapes from Rueda. Nowadays, the sixth Yllera generation with a great team are leading this winery that during the last years has reached an unquestionable position in the national and international market. This is thanks to their continous commitment on innovation and to the personality and great quality of all their wines: from the white wines Yllera Vendimia Nocturna, our sparkling Yllera Brut Privée, the red wines Yllera, the revolutionary frizzantes Yllera 5.5 until the latest wines from Ribera del Duero, Jesús Yllera and Pepe Yllera.
The elaboration process in Bodegas Yllera is always focused on excellence: an exhaustive selection of the grape in the vineyard and in the winery, low yields that are below the accepted by the apellations of origin, the use of natural yeasts, a great French and American oak barrel park, laboratories equiped with the latest technology... All this to get wines of greater quality, elegance and personality every day.
