Tasting Notes

Type of wine: Organic Red wine
Grape Varieties: 50% Monastrell, 50% Syrah
Ageing: 12 months in American oak barrels

This wine arises from a very Spanish blend of Monastrell and Syrah grapes carefully selected from the best plots of our estate. Aging for twelve months in oak barrels highlights its unique character. Its personality makes it a pleasant, warm, complex wine, perfect for tasting and drinking any time.

Winemaker’s Notes: Cherry red color with purple shines. In nose, it is fresh with intense aromas of red fruits, jam, cherries and plums. Aroma of toast with notes of liquorices and coffee. In mouth, the fruit perfectly blends with the oak, showing sweet tannins followed by a round, fresh and complex structure. Long and intense aftertaste.

Food matching: Red meat, lamb, carpaccio, tapas, semi-cured Manchego cheese.

Drinking temperature: 18 °C/ 62 °F
Winemaking: The Tempranillo comes from the plots whose slops face north, with a limestone composition and the Monastrell are grown at the lower end of the estate from soil poor in calcareous properties, ideal to concentrate aromatic nuances. .The Tempranillo is made into wine at low temperatures (15-18 °C) and the Monastrell at higher temperatures (25 °C). The maceration process takes approximately 18 days for Tempranillo and 20 days for Monastrell. The wine is transferred for 12 months to American oak barrels.


Critical Praise

The wines of Bodegas Los Frailes are all certified organic. Robert Parker's "Wine Advocate" has provided some great notes on this wine/cuvee over the years... try a bottle for yourself!

"...Purple in color, it sports a complex bouquet of cedar, Asian spices, violets, blueberry, and blackberry schnapps. In the mouth it has excellent depth, intense flavors, good richness, and 1-2 years of aging potential. Drink this excellent value through 2018." Wine Advocate #188

"...aged for 12 months in 25% new American oak. It offers up an attractive bouquet of cedar, tobacco, mineral, blueberry, and black cherry leading to a sweetly-fruited, forward, round, spicy wine with no hard edges in its medium-long finish. Drink it over the next four years." Wine Advocate #181
