All of the wines are produced in a similar way—fermentation after a short cold soak, with pumping over and punching down and macerated until the taste tells them it's enough. This wine matured in 225-liter French barriques for 16 months. In a warmer year, the high percentage of Cariñena has worked wonders; it has herbal and floral aromas and a rustic side but is mostly elegant. It's beautifully textured, and the tannins are very fine; there is no sense of heat at all, and it has amazing balance and a very tasty finish. The oak is perfectly integrated. These wines have a very low pH, as there is no potassium in the slate soils and the wines keep good freshness. 23,290 bottles and 501 magnums produced. It was bottled in June 2019. -LG

Wine Spectator, August 2021
The medley of black cherry, currant and plum is focused and lively and flanked with tar, smoke and spice undertones. This has depth, freshness and harmony of flavors. Carignan and Grenache. Drink now through 2033. – GS

The Garnacha in this blend is harmonious, with a tempting lift of acid just at the finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025
