    Winemaker's Notes:

    We selected the Monastrell grapes for this wine from 40-year old parcels in our estate vineyards. Here shallow, chalky soils on a bed of limestone and rock, combined with an arid climate, produce the low yields (1,8 ton per acre) required for wine of this complexity. After harvesting, the deep purple grapes are whole-cluster macerated "sur lie" for 25 days, and then pressed and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

    It has a very dark cherry color with purple tones. In the nose it has powerful aromas of red berries, toasted and smoked notes from their aging in the oak barriques.

    It has good structure with ripe and sweet tannins. In the mouth it is very long, and with a perfect balance between fruit, alcohol and the oak tones, which make it very pleasant and easy to drink.

    Rices with meat, stewed meat, stewed vegetable, mushroom, poultry, sauces fish, smoked seafood, blue and cured cheese, red meat, roast and baked meat (lamb, pig, ox).

    Critical Acclaim:

    Opaque purple. Blueberry, boysenberry and smoky Indian spices on the nose, with a sexy floral quality coming on with air. Juicy, sweet dark berry flavors are framed by velvety tannins and enlivened by zesty minerality. Gains depth and fleshiness with air, finishing on a strong boysenberry note, with excellent sappy persistence. This is delicious right now.

    I love this wine. I've had a few vintages of it and every time I take a sip I'm reminded what a nice wine this is--this might be one of my favorite vinatages. It's not quite as big and juicy, meaning its a bit more elegant on the finish (rare for the style in which it's made). Huge fruit notes--rich blue fruits (blackberries, cassis, black cherries) with nice tannins. Very tasty and always a star when served!

    I am glad to see Juan Gill back, I liked the 2006 and the 2007 is very nice as well. I think it is a good deal price-to-quality.

    I am not a big fan of highly spiced wine. Perhaps the tasting note that read "Indian spices on the nose" should have been a clue. It seemed overpowered by spice. After a little time, and a few more small sips, I had to say goodbye to glass and bottle. Ouch.
