The 2015 AN/2 is mostly Callet with small amounts of Fogoneu and Manto Negro grapes fermented in 4,000-liter oak vats and cement tanks with yeasts they have isolated from their own vineyards. It matured for 13 months in oak barrels, mostly French but with some 20% made of American oak and 10% of Central European oak, but 10% of the volume wasn't put in barrique. It's fragrant and perfumed, with generous spices and smoke, but also flowers and wild berries. It feels quite fluid, more agile, with good balance.
Deep ruby-red in color, ÀN/2 has complex aromas of savory spices, wild raspberries, dark cherry fruit and a hint of violets and smokiness. On the palate the wine is silky and elegant with intense flavors of mature fruit. Well-balanced with a long finish.
This wine pairs excellently with pork chops, rabbit ravioli, or roasted leg of duck.
Blend: 65% Callet, 20% Mantonegre-Fogoneu, 15% Syrah
