Full medium ruby. Complex nose melds cassis, minerals, musky chocolate and coffee liqueur. Sweet, sappy and spicy, with a creamy texture and liqueur-like berry fruits lifted by pepper. Finishes with firm tannins and a lingering peppery sweetness. Excellent value. A blend of tempranillo, merlot, cabernet and monastrell, plus 5% mando, an indigenous grape being revived by the estate.

After a year in French oak, this five-grape blend takes on the characteristics of a fine Bordeaux. A silky blend of blackberry liqueur, chocolate, and smoke is coupled with a graceful structure and long finish.

Dark ruby. Redcurrant and cherry aromas accented by strong floral and herb notes, plus a hint of tobacco; this smells like cabernet. Firm on the palate, with bright acids perking up the bitter cherry and licorice flavors and fine-grained tannins providing support. Builds nicely on the finish while maintaining focus and crispness. Tasty now but I suspect that a year of bottle aging will bring more complexity.

The 2003 Les Alcusses (aged 12 months in French Oak) is a blend of Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, and Mando, an indigenous varietal that has begun to reemerge. This beauty boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a fragrant display of black cherries, raspberries, currants, white flowers, and subtle background notes of wood smoke. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, and gorgeously pure with admirable elegance, palate penetration, and acidity, it is an expressive, artistic Spanish red to enjoy over the next 5-7 years.
