Profile

Smell

Notes of ripe black cherry, current, and raspberry emerge from the glass of this inky purple wine, along with hints of espresso, nutmeg, and olives.

Taste

Full-bodied and silky smooth on the palate, with soft, integrated tannins and balanced acidity. It's youthful and fruity, with flavours of red plum, black cherry, and tart cranberry giving way to a warming, spicy finish.

Pairing

Try this fuller-bodied red with the earthy flavours of lamb or venison dishes, or match with charcoal-grilled skirt steak tacos.

Aromas and Flavours

Black Currant

Sometimes also referred to as 'cassis', this black fruit tasting note is common in red wines.

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Tobacco

The smell of a freshly rolled cigar, slightly sweet, and earthy - just like Grandpa's hugs.

Nutmeg / Cloves

Think of the holidays - a warm and woody spice found in your favourite baked goodies.

Olive

Briny quality, slightly bitter and green. Think about that dirty Martini you recently had!

Description

Penedès, in north-east Spain, is known primarily for making one of the country's most popular wine exports: traditional-method sparkling wines called Cava. Dig a little deeper, though, and you'll discover that most of the region's top wineries also produce exceptional still wine. Such is the case with Celler Jan Vidal, a small producer located in the heart of the region. Their Honor Vi Negre is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, two French varieties that have a long and well-established history in this part of Spain. The warm, dry Mediterranean climate allows for optimal ripening of grapes, and the classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon creates a finished wine with great structure and depth. Enjoy over the next 3-5 years at about 18 C.
