Winemaker's Notes:

Notes of leather, toasted bread and ripe fruits mixed with a touch of spices. The taste of the wine is intense, concentrated and complex - a sophisticated wine with extraordinary richness of extract and savory flavor.

There are 64 acres of old Monastrell vines, and 45 acres of 25 year old Cabernet Sauvignon. The climate is continental.
