Winemaker's Notes

"(60% tintorera, 30% monastrell and 10% cabernet sauvignon) Opaque ruby. High-pitched cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by smoky bacon, rose oil, anise and minerals. Fresh and juicy, offering sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors along with a bright mineral undertone. Finishes fresh, clean and precise, with very good persistence This wine, which saw no oak, was made by Ester Nin, who is the cellarmaster at Clos Erasmus. Great value."
