Color: Dark, intense, cherry red. Bouquet: Good aromatic intensity; complex, with hints of red and black fruit in liqueur, preserves and mineral notes. Taste: Rounded and well-balanced, with ripe, smooth tannins. Good integration of wood. Hints of ripe fruits in liqueur, suggesting raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. Nuances of licorice, wild herbs and mineral qualities. Good acidity. Long, persistent finish. Serving Suggestions: Perfect with paella, risottos or virtually any rice dish. Splendid with duck and game. For something a little different, try pairing this wine with lobster - as is the custom in the Catalan coastal regions of Spain.

Wine SpectatorBlack cherry, toast, tobacco and mineral notes mingle in this maturing red. The structure is still firm, but the tannins are beginning to melt into the spicy finish, and the acidity is still lively. Grenache, Carignane, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2012. 1,500 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis Garnacha- and Carignan-based wine offers a brilliant color and a true bouquet of graphite, mineral, char and black fruit. Thus expectations are high as you head to the palate, which turns out to be sheer, acidic and hard. Amid the scour you'll pull out plum and blackberry flavors. It gets it two-thirds right; the nose and color are there but the mouthfeel is lacking.
