Winemaker's Notes

Red wine aged for 16 months in barriques. All of the grapes used are grown and harvested on estate vineyards. This wine can be enjoyed now or over the next 10 years.

Blend: 60% Grenache, 25% Carignan, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Critical Acclaim

"Planted in pure slate at an altitude of 900 meters, this vineyard has produced an impressive blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Carignan, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Aged in 100% French oak, it exhibits a vivid, well-defined bouquet of blueberries, black currants, minerals, and background sweet oak. Full-bodied yet elegant, with admirable purity, a multilayered texture, and sweet tannin, this is a fairly priced beauty from the highly fashionable appellation of Priorat."
