Idus is the result of a close collaboration with local viticulturalists and owners of "trossos," or small vineyard blocks,
who cultivate old-vine Cariñenas and Garnachas. These old-vine vineyards, which are located in the Porrera and
Torroja municipalities, are the key to the character of this wine.
"The 2005 Idus is composed of 42% Carinena, 20% Merlot, 15% Garnacha, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Syrah and spent 16 months in seasoned French oak. Dark garnet-colored, it offers up a complex perfume of wood smoke, tobacco, mineral, wild blueberry, black cherry, and black currant. This leads to a full-bodied, opulent, full-flavored wine with lots of extraction, sweet, ripe fruit, well-concealed tannins, and at least 6-8 years of aging potential. This lengthy, gratifying effort should drink well through 2030."
The Wine Advocate

Idus is a big load that starts out sharp and toasty and then quickly settles into a saturated groove of black fruit, licorice, coffee and mocha. It’s dark, deep and ripe, with slight mineral underpinnings. Carignan is the lead grape, with Merlot, Garnacha, Cabernet and Syrah filling out the blend. "
