Vineyards and Winemaking: Slate/quartzite soils. 10–15 days temperature controlled fermentation (to a maximum of 28° C), 15 days post-fermentation maceration. Aged for 14 months in French oak (50% new). Grapes: 60% Cariñena, 40% Garnacha (average age 60 years). Picked: September 20–October 20, 2002. Tasting Notes: Aroma: Intense fruits, minerals, flowers, spices and oak. Taste: Plum and wild berries with licorice and spice; warm and earthy with fine tannins and a delicate structure.
A very vibrant wine with complexity throughout. Soft oak on the nose with a bouquet of blackberry, strawberry, cherry, subtle notes of honey and orange. The body is a little hot, but light and well-balanced with a good amount of tannin, notes of citrus, black pepper pomegranate and strawberry with cedar on the back of the palette. A long finish of cherry and notes of cocoa, smoke and vanilla.
