"A terrific bargain is the 2004 Sacra Natura, a blend of 60% Carignan and 40% Tempranillo. A pungent earthy note provides a distinctive terroir aspect to this dark purple-hued 2004. Sweet raspberry and blueberry fruit along with scents of new saddle leather, spice box, toast, and vanilla emerge from this beautiful effort. It is hard to believe such quality is available at this price."
Vinos Pinol is one of the biggest promoters of organic farming in spain. Vinos Piñol allows plants other than vines to grow in and around the vineyads. This system helps regulate the vineyard soil by attracting beneficial insects, and predatory mites, as well as provide food (pollen, nectar etc.) Replacing the need for chemical pesticides or insecticides.
Sacra Natura is a rich wine, with well balanced fruit, very good structure, toasted notes on the nose, and a smooth long finish.
