Expert Reviews

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2009

($16; a blend based on monastrell and garnacha tintorera) Vivid purple color. Decadent aromas of blackberry and blueberry preserves, smoky minerals, apricot pit and Indian spices. Broad, powerful dark berry flavors are framed by big but velvety tannins and enlivened by a subtle mineral quality. The minerality builds on the finish, which is impressively focused and persistent. These soils are reportedly high in chalk content and lie at 2,400 feet above sea level. (Fine Estates from Spain, Dedham, MA)
