"The 2011 Fuerza is mainly Monastrell with 25% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented traditionally and aged 12 months in barriques. The nose shows a mixture of esparto grass, Mediterranean herbs, paprika and tree bark over the core of black cherries. The palate is quite savory, with fine, although abundant tannins that would do better with some powerful meat dishes." WA 90 pts
The "Caroline" comes from 40 year old vines and is a floral, peppery, dark expression of Syrah. If you like that smoky, spicy Northern Rhone thing, then this wine has your number.
