Winemaker's Notes:

Blackish ruby color with ripe blackberry aromas that combine fresh and jammy tones and a mix of floral and citrus. Balanced and powerful on the palate with dark chocolate and mint flavors and good minerality.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Santiago Apostol:

Bodegas Santiago Apostol was founded in 1950 by a group of growers who wanted to promote the Monastrell varietal because they found that the Monastrell varietal was well adapted to the extreme growing conditions in the region. Many of their estate vineyards are old and with lots of special attention have survived the Phylloxera attack in the 1980s. Pepe Pastor is the technical director of the bodega and the wine maker and utilizes the latest technology to produce contemporary, yet modern style wine.
