The 2005 Las Pizarras, produced from 100% old bush vine, dry-farmed Garnacha (70-100 years of age) is remarkably floral (violets) with traces of lavender, spices, and Provencal herbs. The blanc cherry flavours are mouth filling and there is enought tannin for several years of development. Taste blind, you might think this was a high class Chateauneuf du Pape.

The 2005 Alto Las Pizarras take things to a still higher level. A selection of the best lost was put into 100% new French oak to complete malolactic where it remained until recent bottling. Toasty oak, black fruits and espresso roast aromas are followed by a full-bodied wine with supple, sweet cherry and black fruit flavours with no hard edges. Put this beauty in the cellar for 3-5 years and drink it over the following 15.
