L'Excepcional - Pedra Negra No.3 2017

Very vibrant, lovely color. Blast of fresh red plum and dark cherry, ripe, brilliant fruit profile, herbal anise notes, fennel, fresh green garden herbs, steeped tea leaves, and a touch of cured lemon peel. Super fresh, clean fruit on the palate, linear but with enough chewy flesh at the sides to really dig into. Lingering, beautiful finish that combines all the upfront fruit characteristics of the region with the excellence of this high-altitude vineyard. Minuscule 0.2ha vineyard between Poboleda and Torroja.
