Numanthia Termes 2015
Catena Zapata Catena Malbec 2016The Catena Malbec presents a deep violet color with purple reflections. This microclimate blend of four unique vineyards offers intense aroma, soft texture and concentrated flavor. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by flavors of blueberries and blackberries with a touch of leather and cinnamon. The wine has well-integrated tannins, bright acidity and a flinty minerality that provides exceptional length to the finish. Food Pairing: Pair with roast turkey, grilled steak, salmon, and pasta with red sauce.
Jorge Ordonez Zerran 2014The D.O. Montsant is a horse shoe shaped appellation that surrounds the D.O. Priorat on three sides. The winery is located near the town of Capcanes next to a nature reserve. Despite the proximity to the Mediterranean the winery is located at high elevation, 500-600 m, which is buffered by the Serra del Llaberia and Serra de Tivissa mountains. The winery owns 10 acres of old vine Garnacha and Cariñena. It also purchases grapes from local grape growers. The soils are similar to Priorat with Montsant being a bit more complex with a mixture of slate, sandy clay, and chalk. The varietal, Cariñena (Mazuelo), was planted on sandy clay soil; Syrah on chalky soils and the Garnacha on slate. The climate is Mediterranean with an average annual rainfall of 450 L.
