This is a lightly oaked blend of all three soil types in the Clos de Noi vineyard - clay, sand and galets. Each terroir lends its own expression to the wine, giving it balance, structure and elegance.
Deep ruby. Black raspberry and Asian spices on the nose. Juicy, focused and very fruity, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors with a strong mineral underpinning. Reminds me of a ripe New World pinot noir, showing impressive clarity and lingering, mineral-accented red berries. This is a real value.
Carles Escolar is a young and rising star in the region of Montsant. This small production (only 500cs made) wine is made from 50-60 year old, 100% Samso (Carginan), from a blend of vineyard sites. The three different parcels represent the typical soils of the region – Chalk, Clay, and Galets.
