Winemaker's Notes

Number 33 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

"The 2004 Solanera is a blend of 65% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Tintorera raised in French oak. More complex than its siblings, this purple-colored wine offers fragrant aromas of spice box, smoke, blueberry pie and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, the wine is plush and full-flavored with enough structure to support several years of additional bottle age. It should drink well for 8-10 years."

While being in a very generic style showing no spanish terroir, this wine is stellar. The mouthfeel is plush, the fruit is perfectly ripe, and there's a 30-40 second finish. This has more polish than alot of $50 wines. One of the best QPR's on the planet!
