Very spicy and minerally on the nose with dark fruits such as blueberry and blackberry. Full body, dense and silky textured. Beautiful finish of slate and orange peel. Crystalline.

The red single vineyard 2014 A Capilla de la Falcoeira is sourced from 45 terraces on a south-facing orientation planted with a mix of red grapes—Mencía, Brancellao, Sousón and Garnacha Tintorera. It's a new vineyard they have planted themselves, inspired by how the old vineyards have a field blend of varieties. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats and matured in well-seasoned 228-liter oak barrels. This is the most powerful of the three single vineyard reds; it's a vineyard that achieves higher ripeness, but in 2014 it feels quite balanced. It doesn't have the depth of the other two, but it's still very impressive for a very young vineyard. The common thread is the textured feeling, the granite minerality.
