Grenadine red with violet tints. As the wine opens, aromas of fruit, a variety of red fruit against a background of blackcurrants, honey and peach preserve accompanied by lactic notes. Second aromas associated with mixed spices result from contact with oak. Agreeable in the mouth, with good structure, minerals and complex persistent tannins. In the retro nasal the fruit repeats with soft touches of toast.
Blend: Garnatxa 33%, Carinyena 32%, Cabernet Sauvignon 25%, Syrah 10%
"A blend of equal parts Grenache, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a dollop of Syrah, this impressive offering is the creation of Professor Nadal, who teaches oenology at the University of Taragona. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sweet nose of crushed rocks intermixed with raspberries, blueberries, and mountain fruits. Full-bodied with an intensity and richness that build incrementally as well as subtly."
