Creu Alta is a blend of carignan (60%) and grenache (40%). The proportions vary a little from vintage to vintage.
The grenache comes from vines that are 80 years old, and the carignan is harvested exclusively from hundred-year old vineyards.
"Inky ruby. Explosively aromatic bouquet of red berry compote, baking spices and flowers, along with mocha, anise and vanilla. Deep, sweet and palate-staining, with intense raspberry and kirsch flavors, supple tannins and a jolt of fresh minerals on the finish. The spicy character lingers with superb clarity and persistence. (Eric Solomon Selections, Charlotte, NC) " -Rated 93, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
