Raspay Tinto

2012

100% Monastrell from eighty-year-old vines that have grown resistant to the Mediterranean heat of Alicante. The grapes are hand-harvested, totally destemmed and lightly crushed prior to pressing. The resulting wine is complex, floral, and spicy with some hints of leather and tobacco. Delicious and ready to drink now.

"...Mineral- and spice-accented raspberry and dried cherry scents, along with a balsamic quality and a hint of candied rose. Offers sappy red fruit preserve, licorice and floral pastille flavors that are energized by a spicy flourish on the back half. In a vaguely oxidized style, by intent, with a very long, supple finish that echoes the floral, spice and red berry notes."
