The reserve is our most daring wine, characterized by a long whole-berry fermentation in 500 Liter oak barrels. Some people say this sort of “integral fermentation” creates wine with a totally different feel than traditional fermentation. It retains fruit like a carbonic maceration, but it’’s not quite a carbonic maceration because there is some air that gets in through the pores of the wood and the barrel’s open top when we take our daily measurements on each barrel. The result has been described as sublime and hedonistic and every other good word there is. :)

One time, a customer asked me if I had ever tasted Screaming Eagle. He assured me that it was almost as good as our Reserve. :D I’ll leave it to you to decide if this is a legendary cuvée. But I know that I love it.

Wine Pleasures  Vinofreak - from 76 to 150 reviews    Spain
**** Very good 
In the glass you get a purpley-red velvet followed by a nose full of toasted coffee beans, tobacco and chocolate. More fruit seem to come through on the palate, with black plums dominating and a few chocolate dipped cherries. Towards the end of the palate you get a smoky, black pepperedness intertwined with the fruits - delish! Food matches would include barbequed reindeer steaks or sliced elk meat with mashed potato and cranberries.
