International Wine Cellar “Focus on Spain” issue 176 Sept/Oct 2014
92 Points, The Cellar Selection, The Wine Enthusiast,“Smoky, fiery initial aromas of cinnamon, baking spices, schist, and red-berry fruits echo with licorice and minerality. This is a big boy with 15.5% abv and a layered, rich, heady palate. Deep, dark, lusty plum and blackberry flavors run long on the finish, with notes of leather and wild herbs. Drink from 2017 through 2025.” Michael Schachner, June 2015
This wine was made from grapes planted on slopes named in the region “Costers” (dramatically steep land, 45 degrees, where no machine can be used), where the vineyards are practically a hundred years old, a fact that provides a repeatable minerality, concentration, and structure in comparison to other zones. The grapes undergo a 48-hour pre-fermentation cold soak followed by temperature-controlled fermentation 29° to 32° celsius, in small stainless steel vats, and macerated for a 30-day period. Aged in new French Allier oak barrels of various toasts and coopers for 14 months. Bottled Unfiltered.
|Pair with roast lamb shoulder or steak on the grill. This wine would also be happy being taken to a bbq to be shared alongside some smoked pork ribs.|
