Deep and dark on the nose, with licorice, cola and prune aromas. The palate is chunky and full, albeit a touch soft. Saturated flavors of cola, blackberry and chocolate define it as a rich, modern wine, and the finish is appropriately creamy and stacked with sweetness and depth. A lush blend of Garnacha, Cabernet and two indigenous varieties. Drink now through 2011.
With petrol and peach-pit aromas, this is a tight blend of 70% Garnacha Blanca and 30% Macabeo (Viura). The palate is structured and healthy, while the flavors suggest banana, melon and papaya. It finishes crisp, chalky and lush, as if a dusting of powdered sugar were dropped in at the end.
Vanilla, caramel, bramble, pepper and spice all appear on the bouquet, while the palate is full in size, with a saturated feel and flavors of sweet berries and plum. It’s a pretty big but not enormous four-grape blend, and overall it’s devoid of tricks or glaring faults.
