Tasting Note

Clean and bright. Deep red cherry color a little bit evolved because of the age. On the nose it is complex, it is one of the most memorable expressions of the leading grape of Priorat and its granitic “licorella” soil. Excellent harmony: red fruit such as strawberry, wild berries some flowers but once is open tobacco, slate and balsamic aromas are coming with different fruit such as figs and plums; some hints of creamy and caramel; the aging results in cinnamon and licorice. On the palate it is powerful, extraordinary backbone and elegant. Sweet polished tannins, perfectly balanced with minerals and jammy fruity flavors. Smooth and lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this powerhouse red with aged beef, beef stews or pot roasts.
