    Winemaker's Notes:

    Committed to the quest of producing unique wines with identity, winemaker and owner Juan Carlos López de la Calle believes old vines are the key to accomplishing this complex pursuit. After having achieved success in Rioja and Navarra, Juan Carlos went to Alicante for the extreme climatic conditions, disparate soil types and, above all, for the old-vine Monastrell indigenous to the region. Perfectly adapted to its environment, the old-vine Monastrell produces silky, delicate and balanced fruit that transforms into the epitome of a succulent Mediterranean wine. Seductive and sweet with velvety tannins, this wine also has cool balsamic undertones that prevent palate fatigue and stimulates one to take another sip. Deep cherry red in color with an amaranthine hue, El Sequé has complex aromas of ripe berries, aniseed, toasted oak and forest floor. Fresh and fruit-forward in the mouth, the wine is well-structured with ripe, sweet tannins that persist over time.

    Critical Acclaim:

    (90% monastrell and 10% syrah): Opaque violet color. Enticing aromas of cherry-cola, black raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices. Very ripe but fresh and energetic, with excellent clarity to its sweet dark berry and spice flavors. Juicy, penetrating and long on the finish, with the spice and floral notes echoing.
