Winemaker's Notes:

Incredible pricing on this blend of old vine Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Costa Brava at Celler Mas Gil. Made by winemaker extraordinaire Peter Sisseck of Pingus fame - don't miss out on this price.

"($100) Ruby-red. Powerfully scented nose features blueberry, cassis and cherry liqueur laced with espresso, licorice and smoked meat. Firm in structure but explosive in ripe dark fruit flavor, with complicating notes of bacon fat, black cardamom, iron and cigar box. Finishes with building richness and great length. This is another Peter Sisseck project."

My Notes:

About Clos d'Agon:

Located on the hills overlooking the village of Calonge and only 3 kilometers away from the Mediterranean Sea, Clos d'Agon is fashioning the most intelligent and delicious wine to ever come out of the region. With Peter Sisseck of Pingus fame as consulting winemaker, the property has taken the wine world by surprise with a sophisticated, complex white wine made with Rhone varietals and a deeply concentrated, expressive red.
