Winemaker Notes: Deep purple with a violet-bluish hue at the rim. Intense nose but with a surprising amount of complexity and detail. Blackberries and boysenberries, remembrances of tree bark, violets and dry earth. An immeasurably rich spicy background, with some smoky and bitter cocoa notes, and a tip of Havanna cigars. The mouthfeel is smooth, fresh and imposingly deep. Fresh and compact, with exceptional acidity and luscious palate. Though a ripe and big-boned wine, the oak is exceptionally integrated, with fantastic balance and impressive focus. Long finish, with some toasted and spicy undertones.
Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Monastrell
