Grapes: 60% Syrah, 40% Tempranillo
Both grape varietals come from a certified organic vineyard “Casa Colomer.” This vineyard is planted in sandy loam soils situated at 600 m above sea level.
The varieties were fermented separately, after a gentle destemming and light crushing. The fermentation-maceration took place in stainless steel tanks of 20,000 kilos of capacity. Fermentations start cool and finish warm, this combined with a program of pumping over, extracts color and appropriate structure in the end yielding a clean fermentation and high quality wine.
The whole process was conducted according to the most stringent guidelines established by the Committee of European farming, being certified by the IMO, which is accredited by the USDA for the marketing of “wine made from organic grapes”

Glass-staining ruby. Intense, spicy aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cracked pepper and violet; showing the syrah today. Dense and chewy in the mouth, offering zesty dark berry flavors and picking up a firm edge with air. Lingers nicely on the finish, leaving behind a slightly bitter berry skin quality. Issue 152, Sept/Oct 2010
A creamy red, laced with sweet spice, blackberry coulis and kirsch flavors. There are light tannins for structure, with a juicy, syrupy acidity, and a modest, smoky finish. Syrah and Tempranillo. Drink now through 2013. Issue 3606, August 2011
