Winemaker Notes

Garnet ruby core with vibrant violet rim. On the nose aromas of brambly black raspberries and black currant intermingle with roasted meat, licorice, and dried oregano. On the palate tart and tangy ripe black cherry harmonizes with smoky oak, sweet tobacco, and dried sage. The floral aromatics of purple pansies compliment the depth of ripe black fruit in the mouth and hint of piquant balsamic in the finish.

Wine Information

Raig de Raïm (Ray of Grape in Catalan) is a blend of Garnacha, Cariñena, and Syrah made by Celler Piñol in the region of Terra Alta, located southwest of Barcelona. Terra Alta's highland vineyards coupled with Piñol's organic viticulture produce wines that communicate the freshness of this rewarding region, relatively unknown until now. The story of Celler Piñol mirrors the ascendance of Spanish wines in world markets over the past ten years, a story of how a reverence for old, treasured vineyards and the best family traditions have been combined with new winemaking methods to make the finest wines possible. Similar to Yecla and Vinos de Madrid, Terra Alta is one of Spain's up-and-coming wine regions with an identity built on exciting projects and progressive innovation. Juanjo Piñol and Cristina Barroll are the winemakers. Juanjo's mother Josefina remains in charge of the family cellar.
