This limited-production Gran Reserva is only made from exceptional vintages. It has its origins in the Vinya La Scala vineyard, a small eight-hectare parcel planted in 1963. Considered the first Spanish wine made primarily from the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, Vinya La Scala was selected as the official wine for Ronald Reagan’s inauguration at the White House in 1981. Its name is a tribute to the restaurant Jean Leon opened in Beverly Hills during Hollywood’s Golden Age. The label of every new vintage features the work of a renowned artist. The 2011 vintage comes alive with the colorful universe of Javier Mariscal and his piece Atardecer en Brooklyn [Sunset in Brooklyn].
Ultimate expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, as well as its aging potential and correct evolution. A wine with an intense and complex aroma. Good tannic structure, great presence and length.
Deeply opaque, dark cherry red
Ripe fruit, spices, roasted notes
Potent entry, full-bodied, firm structure, long and persistent finish
24 months in French oak; bottle aged a minimum of 3 years
20 days (skin contact + fermentation)
Excellent match for fine red meat with sauces featuring spices like green peppercorn.
Vinya La Scala is a certified Single Vineyard Wine. In vinicultural terms, this means the wine originates from a vineyard whose unique characteristics endow it with great originality and whose microclimate encourages maximum expressivity.
