30% Cabernet Sauvignon
Sourced from “special selection” vines situated between 1,640 to 2,300 feet in stony soils with a minimum plant age of 50 years and highly restricted yields. The grapes are macerated at 40°F for 5-6 days, then fermented at 80°F with continuous pump-overs. The wine macerates with the pulp for about 25-30 days to add powerful structure and character. The blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon lends a rich, modern style combined with the fresh, local notes of Cariñena and Garnacha. The wine ages for 14 months in 50% American/50% French oak, resulting in an intense, mature fruit style with spice, toast and cocoa flavors. Smooth and balanced with a long finish.
