Castell d'Encus - Quest - Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Wine Advocate: 94 Points
"The red Bordeaux blend 2017 Quest was produced with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot and fermented entirely in the 12th-century stone lagars, followed by malolactic and 18 months of aging in brand-new French barriques. Despite the warm and dry year, the wine is only 13.65% alcohol since they are in a cooler zone in the Pyrenees part of Costers del Segre. And the wine does have a cool-climate profile, with great freshness and peppery notes, more classical than the majority of modern Bordeaux with that herbal side. There is nothing creamy about this wine—it's austere and medium-bodied. The tannins are very fine, and there is a bitter twist in the finish. This is amazingly fresh and every bit as good as the best vintages. 4,400 bottles and 100 magnums produced. It was bottled in April 2019."
