The colour is intense and lively with a core of garnet with a bright ruby rim. Stony minerality overlay black fruits and spice on the nose. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with luscious sweet fruit and soft tannins. Fresh berry fruit and toasty notes enrich the structure and natural complexity of the old vines. "A full and round sensation, to be enjoyed with grilled meat of all sorts".

James SucklingA polished and very resolved wine in a flavorsome dark berry fruited guise with gently leafy and savory elements. The palate has deeply ripe and velvety tannins carrying spiced dried cherry flavor. Best from 2020.

Wine SpectatorAlluring notes of orange, lilac and spice frame juicy black cherry fruit in this lively red. Bright acidity and light tannins impart focus and enough structure for food. Garnatxa Negra, Syrah and Samsó. Drink now through 2018. 1,200 cases made.
