Tasting Notes:

The 2011 Vinya La Scala Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva was produced with grapes from eight hectares of vines planted in 1963 on soils rich in calcium carbonate and active limestone. The grapes fermented in stainless steel vats for 12 days followed by 18 days of maceration and malolactic, then the wine aged in French oak barrels for 27 months. The first vintage of this wine is 1969. There are always notes of garrigue, of Mediterranean underbrush, minty with a dusty, earthy touch. It has a tasty palate, fine tannins and good balance. The oak feels better integrated than in other recent vintages. 9,352 bottles were filled in June 2014.
