65% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet"
The Castell del Remei winery dates back to the late nineteenth century and while much of Catalonia
's vineyards were geared towards mass production, Castell del Remei specialized in oak-aged bottled wines, winning international recognition between 1887 and 1907." Today they fashion spice-driven wines of high fruit concentration and even a little "sauvage" character to them that is quite appealing.
"Deep ruby. Intense dark cherry, licorice, espresso and vanilla notes on the nose, with floral and spicy elements. Quite spicy and concentrated, with intense flavors of bitter cherry, dark plum, cassis and licorice. Tangy acids provide lift, and there's an impressive penetrating quality to the dark fruit on the long finish. This is drinking beautifully right now." IWC"
