Awards and/or Press Quotes
2009 Vintage - Robert Parker 90 Points 'The 2009 AN/2 is a blend of 65% Caillet, 20% Mantonegre-Fogoneu, and 15% Syrah aged in one third French and American new oak. It has a wonderful bouquet of plush red berries, leather and melted tar that is very well defined and seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins and lush, mocha-tinged red fruit that is blessed with a satin-like texture from start to finish. this is a lovely Mallorcan red.'
2012 Vintage - Robert Parker Wine Advocate 'An entry level red, the 2012 AN/2 is a blend of 65% Callet, 20% Mantonegro-Fogoneu and 15% Syrah from168 plots of vineyards! The wine fermented in vat and aged in barrel for 13 months. At first there's a clear note of raspberry, but soon the vanilla takes over revealing a good freshness in the nose with Mediterranean notes. The palate is medium-bodied with lactic, creamy flavors and more influence from the oak. It is clean and nice with an approachable, commercial profile.'
