Product Description
Details

This elegant Spanish red wine is produced by the Huguet de Can Feixes winery. It is made from a blend of Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo), Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

The vinification of Can Feixes Negre Tradició was meticulous. Each variety was separately processed in stainless steel tanks.

After that, they were also separately aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Then Can Feixes Negre Tradició 2012 was blended and aged in tanks for a short period of time to allow for the perfect blending of the four wines.

Finally, this organic red wine from Penedès was aged for 48 months in the bottle before its commercial release.

Decant this Crianza red wine 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Can Feixes Negre Tradició has a bright, clean cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

This blend of Ull de Llebre, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot suggests some serious, tertiary aromas of smoke, leather and Havanna cigars, combined with suggestive notes of black fruit, green bell pepper, moka, red berries, white pepper and balsam.

Palate

Mature and well-balanced, this Crianza red wine has a medium body and a savoury passage through the palate. Complex notes of spices, tobacco, vegetables and toast, underpinned by remembrances of wild berries and garrigue. This red wine of Huguet de Can Feixes has a good acidity, smooth tannins and long, toasted finish.

Our personal opinion Nearing its peak, Can Feixes Negre Tradició 2012 is a ridiculously well priced organic red wine from Penedès that will pair excellently with serious meat dishes.

I very much appreciate the fact that a winery sells a wine when it is fully mature. This is drinking excellently right now.
