"Dark violet. Powerful, expansive black and blue fruit, vanilla, oak spice and violet scents show fine clarity and develop a smoky mineral nuance as the wine opens up. Sweet, seamless and fleshy on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry, cherry liqueur, cola and spicecake flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Delivers powerful dark fruit and spice character but shows no excess fat. Clings with strong persistence on the gently tannic finish, which leaves cracked pepper, mocha and candied licorice notes behind."
From the Importer:
"100% Syrah from the Campo de Borja DO in northeastern Spain. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the “cierzo” wind that cools the vineyards nightly."
About the Vineyard:
"Syrah was planted 16 years ago in the foothills of the Moncayo to take advantage of the soil, sun and the uniqueness of the Cierzo, which freshens the grapes from bloom to peak maturity. The vines are 600-700 meters above sea level, in limestone soil, giving the Syrah a pleasant acidity."
"The maceration is between 1- 2 days and the total fermentation takes 10-12 days in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 22 ° to 28 °. At that time 40% of the wine is aged in new American oak barrels for 12 months, and other in stainless steel tank."
"Aroma: Powerful impression of blackberries, with a hint of wood smoke and sweet vanilla. Palate: Flavours of dark berries dominate; wild blackberries and dried plums, with notes of espresso coffee."
Pairing Suggestions: Paella, beef, pork, pasta, and grilled vegetables
