      Winemaker's Notes:

      A blend of old vine red wine varieties (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Grenache, 20% Carignane) this is lush, intense, spicy, and delicious. Amazing value.

      "...Satisfyingly mouthfilling wine, finishing with very good length and substantial ripe tannins..."
      International Wine Cellar

      Nowadays, Capcanes has 250 hectares of vineyards of which about half is devoted to Garnacha; Carinena accounts for 20%, and the balance is made up of Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. The vineyards range in altitude from 150 meters at the bottom of the valley to nearly 550 meters fro the highest terraces where the oldest Garnacha vines grow. Soil in the lower vineyards is deep and rich and fertile, while the higher vineyards are on minerally soil on top of a granite or slate base.

      The difference in altitude, terroir, and the wide varieties of grapes means that harvesting the fruit can last a full two months. Each vineyard is harvested separately at its precise moment of optimum ripeness and each parcel is vinified separately, as well.
