Celler Cal Pla is a family owned winery, that dates back to 1814, since then, up to seven generations have been growing vines and making wines. Cal Pla is the name of the house and of the family, now passed on to the wines. All the wines are produced from grapes grown in their own vineyards and bottled in their Celler.
Tasting Notes: Extremely complex and expressive nose showing good fruit, black cherry and black plum, spices and mineral notes. Dense, mineral with a lovely intensity of sweet black fruited palate. Good character and expression of region and vintage.
Notes: Would improve greatly with an hour´s decanting 2 hours ahead. The wine has a very good ageing potential. This wine will keep very well during the next 13 - 14 years, and will gain even more complexity with the time in bottle.
