Winemaker's Notes

Onix Classic is a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Carignan. The combination of both varietals makes a wine of deep purple color with a bouquet of dark plums, sweet black cherries and a hint of rosemary. The low yielding vines provide intense fruit flavors carried by soft round tannins and touch of black pepper in the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The unoaked 2009 Onix Classic is a blend of 50% Carinena and 50% Garnacha sourced from vines over 60 years of age. Tempting aromas of liquid minerality, Asian spices, incense, black cherry, and black plum inform the nose of this savory, smooth, intensely flavored effort from an excellent vintage. Layered, spicy, and long, it finishes with no hard edges. Drink this outstanding value over the next 4-5 years. "
