92 Pts. Robert Parker

91 Pts. Guía Peñin

Grape Variety: 80% Red Garnacha, 10% Carignan and 10% Syrah. 
Tasting Notes:  Deep blue purple color. At the nose shows high intensity, floral, crushed rock/wet steel.  Notes of berries, blueberry and raspberry along with balsamic notes, sweet spices and subtle and elegant toasted hints.  Medium to full bodied, pure, well balanced mouthfeel. It is a silky wine with a marked, refreshing and crispy balanced acidity and fleshy tannins which are noticeable but pleasant. Long and persistent finish. Balsamic and fruity retro-olfaction.  The wood was pushed to the background, leaving superb ripeness and texture. Fruity, freshness and expressive. Its good acidity and red fruit character make it easy to drink.
