A blend of Monastrell and Syrah, it’s personality makes it a dark, warm and complex wine. On the nose, it has intense aromas of red fruits, jam, cherries and plums; paired with smoky tones, notes of liquorice and coffee. On the palate, the fruit perfectly blends with the oak, showing sweet tannins followed by a round, rich and deep structure.
Wine Align: 91 points – David Lawrason
“Deeply coloured with a lifted, strident nose of blueberry, cassis, rosemary and some meaty character. Quite full bodied and rich. The acidity is high, as is the alcohol (14%). Tannins are well integrated and firm. Excellent length. Very distinctive.”
This bold wine begs for rich foods: beef short ribs, lentils, shiitake and portobello mushrooms and lamb… Adding herbs to your dishes such as thyme, lavender and rosemary will enhance the floral character of the wine.
It is officially and unapologetically fall. The leaves are changing, the days are getting shorter, the sweaters are coming out, and the rich, warm, cozy wines are showing up.
