"The passion fruit flower was chosen as the winery's emblem because its intricate details and mesmerizing qualities mirror our wines and winemaking techniques. Monastrell grapes are hand-harvested from small plots of low-yielding old vines scattered across the hills of the Sierra de la Sima in the heart of Alicante. The wine exhibits deep garnet color with flashes of violet and a bouquet of dark red cherries and leather. On the palate, the wine achieves its full potential, offering notes of blackberries, plums, and licorice with an elegant but persistent finish." —winemaker
"Lastly, the 2014 Tarima Hill, from Alicante, is also 100% Mourvèdre aged 20 months in French oak and from the oldest vines of the estate, planted 1935-1975. They are also relatively high elevation, at 2,000 to 2,400 feet above sea level. This wine shows wonderful, pure aromatics of blueberry, black raspberries, chalk and spring flowers. The wine has beautiful, full-bodied texture, impressive ripeness and purity and length. The minerality is present, and the wine a heck of a value. Drink over the next 4-5 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
