WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?Sustainably grown vines planted from 1978. Tended in clay and sandy soil at 568 m(1,865 ft) elevation
RATING HISTORY:2015 89VM
GRAPE:Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Viura
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:The fresh, pure character of this wine makes this an extremely versatile wine to pair with food. Perfect to drink on its own, while cooking or with any food that is light and uncomplicated such as chicken, rice dishes, pasta and pizza.
VINIFICATION AND AGING:After harvest, the skins mix with the unfermented juice for five days at 45F.
LOCATION, SOIL, CLIMATE:The twenty vineyard parcels that go into the making of this great wine are at approximately 568 meters (1,865 ft.) elevation. The soils are red clay and sand with alluvial sediments. The climate conditions of this area are very beneficial to wine growing. The average temperature from April-October is 61.5 F with 18.3 inches of yearly rainfall. The moderately warm days and cool nights of this Continental Atlantic climate forces the grapes to ripen slowly, resulting in wines that show brighter aromas and more fruit flavors.
TASTING NOTES:Vivid ruby. Fresh red berries, candied flowers and a hint of white pepper on the expressive nose. Juicy, appealingly sweet and light on its feet, offering raspberry and cherry flavors that show good focus and no rough edges. In a highly appealing, easy-to-drink style, yet not lacking in complexity. Closes long and smooth, with no obvious tannins and lingering red berry character. There's serious value here.-- Josh Raynolds.
