The wine exhibits a glass-coating opaque purple color with an expressive nose of pain grille, underbrush, brier, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry fruit leading to a plush, opulent wine with great density, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish. Pair with rice, pasta, (noodles, spaghetti, macaroni), vegetables, mushroom, stewed meat, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, short or medium cheeses. 70% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Spectator – 93 points
A bold, expressive red, loaded with toast and smoke aromas and flavors alongside raspberry tart, black plum reduction, rich earth and ground coffee. Full-bodied and creamy, with layered, sculpted tannins and hints of dried mint and citrus on the finish. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2029. —A.N.
