Tasting Notes

Aromas are of roasted and smoky black fruits. This is structured, revealing its Cabernet Sauvignon framework of noticeable tannins and full body. The dark fruits are ripe and appetizing, notably showing currants and macerated black cherries. Savory notes from the Monastrell and Syrah include a certain woodsiness and earth mixed with smoke, black pepper and chocolate.

This wine is the result of a rigorous selection process, choosing only the best grapes from the Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon variety. The grapes were hand harvested in the third week of October at their optimum ripening point in 15 kg boxes. The selected fruit was chosen by experienced sorters and each variety was macerated in contact with the skins and fermented for 20-30 days at controlled temperatures. It then spent 12 months in new French and American oak barrels.
