This Spanish red is an homage to Saint Martin, a Roman soldier who eventually became a monk and founded the first monastery in western Europe. As the saying goes, "Per Sant Marti Mata el Porc I enceta el Vi," which means, "On Saint Martin's Day, a pig is slaughtered and it is the start of a new wine."

This bottle is therefore released on Saint Martin's Day (the 11th of November) every year and the label is a testament to the aforementioned swine. This wine has vibrant and powerful ripe fruit that goes well with any pork dish (duh). The rich and full body is balanced by salty and savory notes of smoke, salted meats and game.
Baked dark fruit with salty smoked meats, olives and purple flowers.

Raspberries, strawberries and blackberries baked in flavor that compliment earthy and cocoa notes - think: lush and full.
