This wine is made from estate-owned, organically grown grapes. It combines the power of Monastrell with the spice of Syrah. The vines are head pruned in the traditional manner and are dry farmed (no irrigation). The Monastrell grapes come from vines over 60 years old. Yields are a low 2 kilograms (4.4 lbs.) of fruit per vine, which result in wines that are naturally balanced and concentrated.
One year older, the 2010 Barahonda Barrica is composed of 75% Monastrell and 25% Syrah aged in a combination of French and American oak for six months. A big, thick, juicy, dense purple-colored effort, it reveals lots of blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with hints of camphor, licorice and spicy oak. This medium to full-bodied, luscious, fruity, crowd-pleaser should keep for 3-4 years.
