Notes from the Winemaker:

Juan Mat????as Torres P????rez is a fifth-generation vinegrower from the town of Fuencaliente on the island of La Palma. His daughter Victoria is now taking over the reins after having worked alongside Juan Matias in the winery and vineyards for many years. 1999 was the first vintage that they bottled under their name. Before that, they made wine mostly for their own consumption and the rest was sold in bulk to the local restaurant. The winemaking remains old-school in this house: no temperature control, wild yeast fermentation and plenty of whole cluster. The reds are foot-trodden. The wines are raised in very old 600-L American oak barrels and bottled unfiltered. The estate??????s total production is only 1,200 cases

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2011 Vintage):
"Another wine with loads of pesronality the red 2011 Negramoll produced from a variety of vineyards on different soils, orientations and altitudes, is whole-cluster fermented for six days in 600-liter used American oak barrels where it ages for a further five months. It is quite light-colored and starts with a strong reduction on the nose, so give it plenty of air if you cross paths with a bottle. With time it displays some raw meat notes, smoke, forest floor and a touch of iron. The palate is very polished and seamless, the wood perfectly integrated, with a spicy touch redolent of cloves. Drink it now-2017." ?????? Luis Gutierrez (Oct 2013)
