Escabeces is a relatively new project from René Barbier of Priorat and Monstant fame, hailing from the D.O. of Tarragona. A few years ago, a farmer acquaintance approached René to see if he’d be interested in making a wine from a small parcel of 65-year-old Cartoixà Vermell, the very rare Catalan grape also known as red Xarel-lo. The trick with this wine is that, while it presents as a rosé, it is made as if it were a red wine. The Cartoixà Vermell, however, never develops a tremendous amount of pigment, so even with a long skin maceration, the wine only achieves a coppery-pink color.

This wine is suited well to food. Its aromas are spicy and salty with a touch of wildflower honey herbaceousness.
