Winemaker's Notes:

Twelve years after the start of El Seque, owner Juan Carlos has mastered the way to clearly reflect the freshness and concentrated balsamic characters produced in his seasoned and mature Monastrell fruit, making wines of great character and balance.

Deep red and purple in color, this wine has aromas of ripe fruit and Mediterranean forest floor. On the palate the wine is voluminous, smooth and full of mature tannins. Mediterranean in character, with hints of mint and aromatic herbs, the wine has a remarkable freshness and very long finish.

80% Monastrell, 10% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

My Notes:

About El Seque:

Committed to the quest of producing unique wines with identity, winemaker and owner Juan Carlos López de la Calle believes old vines are the key to accomplishing this complex pursuit. After having achieved success in Rioja and Navarra, Juan Carlos went to Alicante for the extreme climatic conditions, disparate soil types and, above all, for the old-vine Monastrell indigenous to the region.
