It’s amazing that we still have this any of this incredible wine in our inventory, as there were only 100 cases/707 bottles produced! Although the label says the appellation is Montsant, this wine is actually harvested from a small estate historically located in Priorat, from the same unique, volcanic licorella soils. Grown on steep slopes, this wine is a balanced blend of 45% Cabernet, 35% Garnacha and 20% Samsó (Cariñena) aged in new French oak for 14 months without filtration. The wine embodies true Priorat weight, depth and character, and exudes aromas of dark berries, cassis and heated slate, well-seasoned by fine-grained, savory tannins. Uncork this complex wine and allow it to unravel with a charcoal-grilled steak and pomme frites while raising your glass to all glorious groundhogs past, present and future.
