"The 2011 Amic, a blend of 60% Garnacha, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 4% Syrah, was aged for six months in mostly used French oak barrels. It displays a bright violet color and a serious nose of ripe black and blue fruits, beeswax and sweet spices, quite Mediterranean. The palate is medium-bodied, with ripe fruit flavors, plums and raisins, with some warmth toward the end. A good Mediterranean red." -Wine Advocate
The 2011 Amic Red from Clos D’Agon is a delicious little wine with black cherry, tobacco and smoke blending on the nose. The palate is ripe and expressive, with more dark berry fruit, a bright acidity and a hint of dark chocolate. A great wine for the price that can be enjoyed now through 2019. - DZ Jan 2017
In the extreme northeast corner of Spain, only 50 miles from the border of France, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, lies picturesque Catalunya. Protected and encased by large forests of olive and exotic, coastal trees perched hundreds of feet above sea level, this breathtaking, coastal enclave is home to French varietals which flourish in the ideal climate. Of the roughly 185 square miles that comprise the Catalunya wine appellation or DO, Denominaciones de Origen, nearly one hundred wineries, or bodegas, handcraft impressive wines in this Spanish region possessing a long tradition of winemaking.

The 2011 Clos d’Agon Amic Tinto displays a bright violet color with Mediterranean aromas of ripe black and blue fruits and sweet spices. Medium-bodied and full of dark cherry, plums and raisins with touches of spice and tobacco deliver warmth on the smooth finish. Best to allow it to open up fully with decanting. Pair this eminently drinkable and rustic Spanish red with pizza or pasta for an experience taken right out of a gorgeous night on the Mediterranean coast.
Garnet red color with bright ruby rim. Presents a balsamic aroma, apple, tabaco leaf, pepper, earthy notes, candied fruit, citrus touches, lightly toasted with an end of licorice. Is fleshy, very ripe fruit, lactic nuances and herbs such as rosemary, and has a vibrant acidity which makes it a fresh wine. On the finish, the wine is soft, round with good lengthy tannins.
Enjoy with roast meats, pastas, tomato dishes, barbecued lamb and game.
