Sourced in the Aguarón area, the Garnacha comes from 40 year-old vines and the Syrah from 15 year-old vines planted at 1600 feet in clay soils. The grapes are macerated for 4 to 5 days at low temperatures followed by fermentation with constant pump-overs to maintain the concentration of the wine. The wine ages 3 months in French oak.
“Black cherry and blueberry aromas lead to a dense, plush savory wine which finishes with no hard edges. It is shockingly good for the money.” – 90 points, The Wine Advocate (2009 vintage)
