Celler Pardas "Negre Franc" '13

It's back! The new releases from one of our absolutely favorite producers in Catalunya is here! To celebrate, we are including the 2013 Negre Franc in this months wine club.

Celler Pardas is a partnership between two friends, Ramon Parera and Jordi Arnan. They found and purchased a very special Masía (Catalan Farmhouse), surrounded by vineyards and agriculture. They've dedicated themselves to local grapes such as Xarel.lo and Sumoll, but also produce fantastic Cabernet Franc. While they haven't found themselves included in the "cool kids" group of natural wine in the Penedès, these two are as committed  as any one else in the region to organic farming, and producing wines of terroir. They are flat out, great wines.

"Negre Franc" is the main red wine of Pardas. It is a blend of predominantly Cabernet Franc, along with Cabernet Sauvignon and Sumoll. It is fermented in concrete tanks, and aged mainly in second and third use French oak, 225 and 300 liters in size.

The 2013 is truly a delicious vintage of Negre Franc. Full-bodied with plenty of black and red berry notes, herbs, and cocoa notes. Drink now with grilled ribeye steaks, or even hold on to a few bottles as this will continue to evolve through 2023.

Year in and year out, one of the best values we have in the store!
