2012

50% Carinena, 20% Garnacha, 20% Syrah, 10% Merlot. Organically grown (certified) vines planted from 1968 -1988. Tended in clay and limestone soil at 356 m (1,168 ft) elevation. 

Each variety was hand-harvested separately to ensure ripeness. After selecting the best grapes from each bunch, the fruit macerates with its juice for 4 days at 6˚C (43˚F) for 25 days. After primary fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation half in oak barrels and half in stainless steel tanks. Aged for 12 months in 300-liter French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels, 50% new, 25% one year old and 25% two years old.

Estate-bottled. Certified organic.
