Overview

Quest is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot which are planted at 1000 meters above sea level on clay limestone soils. At this elevation vintages can vary, with Quest either showing a cool Atlantic, or generous Mediterranean personality but at its core are the classic flavors that one would expect from these varieties. Above all, there is a freshness and poise that is a hallmark of Raül Bobet’s work in the mountains of Costers del Segre. Picked by hand and fermented in the ancient, but newly restored, stone lagars on the property, Quest is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
