94pts James Suckling

A classy, savory expression of cabernet sauvignon with cigar, cedar, cassis and dried mushrooms. A full-bodied cabernet with juicy blue and black-fruit character that provides superb drinkability. Refined and flavorful, but also precise. Quite long. Drink or hold.

Tasting Notes

It is the utmost expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, aged and evolved to perfection. This intense and complex wine presents a good tannic structure with a long and persistent finish.

Winemaker Notes

Jean Leon Vinya La Scala is a red wine from the D.O. Penedès made by Jean Leon. Behind this great wine we find a humble and exciting story that tells us about the life of Jean Leon, a Spaniard to ended up a big hit in Hollywood thanks to his restaurant.

This Gran Reserva is named after the restaurant that Jean Leon founded in Beverly Hills. La Scala was the local meeting point for celebrities during the Golden Age of Hollywood, such as Marilyn Monroe, immortalized on the label of this 2003 vintage according to the artist Josep Maria Subirachs' artistic vision.

Turning to the wine, it is made with grapes of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety. This wine is suitable for ageing. After fermenting in stainless steel vats the wine ages in new French oak barrels for 24 months followed by at least three years of ageing in the bottle.

Vineyard Notes

Vinya La Scala holds the Single Estate Wine certification, meaning, in winemaking terms, that it is produced from a vineyard with specific features that confer unique characteristics to the wine and a microclimate that favours its maximum expression.
