The grapes for the "Old Vines Expression" come from vineyards that are over 35 years old and all grapes are hand harvested. This wine is a blend of 85% Monastrell, 10% Syrah, and 5% Garnacha. Maceration lasts ten days and then following fermentation the wine is aged in used oak barrels for at least 12 months. There is then an additional 12 months of bottle aging before the wine is released. Aging potential is at least eight years if not longer.
Aromas include cherries, plums, and an interesting hint of aromas from soy and freshly baked hard rolls along with nuances of many other rich fruit aromas that result in a beautiful aromatic profile. There is then an interesting flavor profile which includes very ripe and juicy yellow peaches complemented with dark cherries. The really fun aromas and flavors are then balanced with a medium to full mouthfeel which is perfectly balanced across the palate. The finish then builds with long, rich, and powerful sensations along with some interesting hints of cinnamon and cloves.
