Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Beautiful scents of violets and blueberry are met by rich flavours of blackberry and wild strawberry. A full throttle wine with big flavours and rich texture.
Ratings "Bright violet color. Expressive aromas of black and blue fruits, licorice and candied flowers, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Round, supple and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated blueberry and cassis flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Shows impressive energy and power on the finish, which is shaped by smooth, harmonious tannins that are quickly absorbed by the wine's fruit."
Production Notes Made with 100% Garnacha grapes sourced from 90 year old vine Garnacha. Selected from old bush vines around the town of Longares, at an altitude of 530 meters on soils of limestone and decomposed chalk. Vinification and aging done strictly in tank to accentuate the pure essence of old vine Garnacha – no oak!
Food Pairing Notes Pair this with beef stew, slow braised lamb shanks or spice-based dishes.
Other Notes The Cariñena designation of origin is the oldest D.O. of Aragon, the first in Spain and home to some of the oldest vines in the country. Vineyards are located around the central part of the Ebro River in the same locations prized by the Romans when they occupied Iberia. The vines are bush pruned and suffer from cold nights and warm days, perfect for the phenolic development of the grapes, and the retention of high acidity.
