Winemaker's Notes

"The 2005 El Vell Coster is 80% old-vine Carinena and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon from Pasanau. Opaque purple-colored, it has an enthralling nose of scorched earth, slate, mushroom, truffle, tar, blueberry, and black cherry. This is followed by an opulent, powerful, loaded wine with great concentration and impeccable balance. It has a decade of cellaring potential and should be at is peak between 2015 and 2030."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
