Mas Irene 2017
We have chosen Merlot from Cal Miret state due to its voluptuous concentration of sweet confiture aromas. On the other hand, with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc we look for the structure and a good aging capacity.
Dedicated to Irene Cusiné.
|67% Merlot , 33% Cabernet Franc cultivated with Biodynamic farming.|

|Great aromatic intensity and complexity with the explicit presence of preserved red fruit well balanced with the touch of toasty notes from the oak.|
|On the palate it is soft and oily; with great amplitude and strength that marks its structure. Intense aroma of forest fruits combined with spices and toasty notes from the barrel. Persistent and pleasant aftertaste.|
