Tasting note

Deep ruby. Smoky, deeply pitched dark berry compote, licorice and bitter chocolate scents show very good clarity, picking up a sexy floral note with aeration. Stains the palate with intense black and blue fruit flavors, with a lavender pastille quality emerging on the back half. At once rich and energetic on the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and smooth tannins. A remarkable value, from a country known for delivering bang for the buck. Score - 91.

LCBO
90 points – Robert Parker. This blend of old-Vine Monastrell and a small amount of Garnacha delivers high-toned black and blue fruit flavours and aromas framed by lively acidity. The palate is smooth texture with a pure, silky finish. Food pairing suggestion: Serve with hearty fare like beef or vegetarian stews, steak and mushrooms or game.
