Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2001 Abadal Reserva 3.9 raises the bar to another level. The fruit comes from a single, steeply terraced vineyard and consists of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah. The wine was aged for 12 months in 70% French and 30% American oak and bottled unfiltered. Purple in color, the wine yields an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pepper, black currants, and blueberry jam. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, elegant, and intensely flavored. It is already drinking nicely and should last through 2015."

My Notes:

About Masies d'Avinyo:

Abadal wine came into being in the Catalan region of El Bages. The vines are cultivated by the Bodega Masies d'AvinyĆ³ on carefully structured terraces on a hilly terroir influenced by a Continental- Mediterranean climate, with a low rainfall. The hot days and cold nights create a microclimate of special contrasts, resulting in wines with a character all of their own, both structured and intense.
