A custom cuvee assembled by importer Eric Solomon, this blend of 40% Bobal, 20% Merlot, and equal parts Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Tempranillo exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, full-bodied, inky, concentrated, black fruit flavors, wonderful sweetness and purity, and a heady, long finish. A big, stylish red made on the border of Yecla and La Mancha, it is undeniably a fabulous value. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Full ruby-red. Floral, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis and licorice. Juicy, spicy and high-pitched, with slightly hard-edged but intense dark berry and licorice flavors lingering nicely on the firmly tannic finish.
This cuvée of Bobal, Monastrell, and Garnacha is unfiltered to preserve the concentrated aromas, and unoaked to show off the terroir of the region in Spain, 100 miles from the Mediterranean.
