Grape varieties: Garnatxa negra, Carinyena

Elaboration: Handpicked grapes, fermentation in stainless steel tanks and bottled afterwards.
“Lively purplish color. Intensely fruity nose with sweet black cherry and plum as well as an attractive spicy, peppery note. On the palate a medium weight structure with fine, smooth tannins, noticeable slightly warming alcohol and balanced, medium acidity. Again intensely fruity with a more plummy character, yet in a lovely combination with a peppery and mineral touch. Perfectly enjoyable now, will gain some complexity for the next 2 years or so.”
