Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) "This substantial blend of 85% Monastrell (Mourvedre) and 15% Syrah experienced malolactic fermentation in new French and American oak, followed by four months of cask aging. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet blackberry fruit, low acidity, and chewy ripeness. It will provide an attractive mouthful of red wine over the next 2-3 years."-Wine Advocate
