SPAIN : GALICIA : RIBEIRA SACRA
MEDIUM BODIED, RED FRUIT, FLORAL, LIGHT, BRIGHT, NEUTRAL OAK
A hauntingly aromatic, pure, and delicately sculpted wine. Finely detailed fruit on the nose that recall wild cherry tinged with blood orange and wild herbs. On the palate, it’s lucid and tender and finishes long.

Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
FULL-BODIED, BLACK FRUIT, MINERAL, CONCENTRATED, SPICE, LUSH, OAK
Unofficially dubbed the ‘Master of Madiran,’ Alain Brumont is truly an artist. Beautifully expressive and aromatic, this blend of mostly tannat is big but carries it’s weight with elegance. Juicy hills of black currant roll over soft tannins and end with spice.
