Anima Negra An 2010

Tasting notes
Deep ruby-red in color, An/2 has complex aromas of savory spices, wild raspberries, dark cherry fruit with hints of violets and smokiness. On the palate, the wine is silky and elegant with intense flavors of mature fruit. Well-balanced with a long finish, this wine pairs well with Pork Chops, Rabbit Ravioli, or duck confit.

2009: 88 Points - Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast: " This is a unique wine from Mallorca with light cherry and raspberry aromas. Clampy, dry and tannic on the palate, itís full of savory, roasted barbecue flavors along with tomato and red fruit notes. Very Mallorcan in that itís salty and savory from start to finish. "

2009: 86 Points - Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator: "This polished red delivers a beam of fresh cherry and berry fruit, framed by licorice, smoke and leafy notes. Light, firm tannins and brisk acidity keep it focused. Drink now. "

Wine maker notes
AN is the iconic flagship wine of Anima Negra. Made primarily from indigenous Callet grapes (95%) with a touch of Mantonegre and Fogoneu. These indigenous grapes are hand-harvested from the oldest vines from many small vineyards in the sub-region of central Mallorca called ”Son Negre”, which translates as the ‘dark place’-ironically-because of the intense sunlight that almost bakes the soil with its intense heat. After fermentation, the wine spends seventeen months of aging in French oak followed by one year in bottle.

Technical notes
An/2 is the perfect introduction to wines of Mallorca. This unique wine is made from old-vine Callet, Mantonegro, Fogoneu, and Syrah fermented in a combination of stainless steel and concrete--macerated only brieftly to retain the freshness and flavors of the fully-ripened fruit. Aged for just over a year in a combination of French Barriques and American oak, of which one third is new oak.
