Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
A fresh interpretation of the terroir and Mediterranean influences of the Montsant appellation.
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah
"Deep ruby. A wild, pungent bouquet evokes dried cherry, tobacco and rose, with smoked meat and musky earth notes adding complexity. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering bitter cherry and game flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Finishes with good energy and length, leaving smoke and cherry notes behind. Distinctly old-school in character and drinking well now."
International Wine Cellar
"Roasted plum, baked berry and jammy aromas can't be missed, but it's structured and not at all soft in the mouth, with wild berry, cherry and boysenberry flavors. It really pours on the fruit, ending fresh with no nonsense."
