Winemaker's Notes

50% Monastrell Old Vines, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Tempranillo

Oak-influenced aromas of vanilla and baking spices, ripe blackberry, plum and boysenberry. Lush dark berry flavors with vanilla, cinnamon and clove accents. Finishes on a dark berry liqueur note, with subtle tannins and a good finish.

"Dark red. Suave, oak-spiced cherry and cassis on the nose, with a gentle vanilla undertone. Sweet dark fruit flavors are round and supple, with soft tannins building on the back. Picks up a spicy quality on the long, juicy finish. The fruit and oak work very well together." 90 Points
International Wine Cellar

Critical Acclaim

"With all the brute force of a Jumilla red, this blend of Monastrell, Tempranillo and Cabernet hides delicate aromas of raspberries and spice behind powerful, almost bestial tannins. Acidity backs it up, working to refresh the finish. A beast in a tux."

The aroma is intense with blackberries and plums. Along with the aroma hints of the warm spices and oak. The flavors are full of plums, blackberries and warm spices with a hint taste of oak. This wine goes great with veal parmigiana. I would suggest other Italian food also.
