    Winemaker's Notes:

    Solanes, which means "sunny" in Catalan, is a dynamic blend of the five predominant red grape varieties that grow within the esteemed grape-growing region of Priorat. Hand-crafted from grape vines that cling to the steep slopes of the Porrera region of Priorat, this wine is perfect for those that love elegant wines which pair well with a variety of foods. Containing aromas of ripe black fruit, toasted oak, slate and traces of eucalyptus; this unique red wine exudes ripe tannins, well-balanced acidity and notes of ripe berries, black licorice and sweet spice on the palate. Ready to drink now, this wine may also be cellared for up to 15 years.

    Blend: 45% old and young-vine Carineña, 30% Garnacha, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    Oaky on first take, then earthy and weighty, with black fruit aromas and minerally notes. Feels tight initially, but with air it softens and soon come flavors of thyme, herbal berry and chocolate. Crisp and nicely balanced, with a solid finish. Almost what you'd call a value Priorat.

    Inky purple. Powerful cherry and raspberry aromas are complicated by dried flowers, allspice and smoky minerals. Fleshy, spice-accented dark fruit compote flavors are firmed by silky tannins and pick up a cherry-vanilla note with air. Rich but in no way heavy, finishing with good clarity and lingering smokiness.
