Las Quebradas 2016

When the ground was "broken" (or "quebrada" in Spanish) at the Las Quebradas vineyard, this 100% Monastrell was born. Fermented in open-top wooden tanks and aged in 500 L Allier oak barrels for 18 months followed by two years of refinement in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

Las Quebradas is a remarkable expression of Monastrell. Full-bodied with an explosion of dark fruits, black pepper, and thyme that unfold into a long, impressive finish.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with rich fare such as beef shortribs, marinated pork shoulder, or a vegetable stirfry tossed with soy sauce.
