Wine Advocate Review
Rated 91
Unfortunately, I still found the 2018 AN/2 too oaky for my taste, as the place, grape and vintage character is hidden by a generous dose of spice, toast and smoke aromas that give it a mainstream/international character. It's possibly fresher and more expressive than previous years. It fermented in concrete and 4,000-liter oak vats with selected yeasts and matured in oak barrels for one year. It's a blend of 65% Callet, 20% Fogoneu and Mantonegro and complemented with 15% Syrah. The wine shows a nice bright ruby color and wants to show the delicacy of the Majorcan grapes with a medium body and fine tannins, moderate alcohol and a nice texture, but unfortunately, it's too influenced by aromas and flavors of wood. I feel this is moving in the right direction, possibly aided by the natural conditions of the year, but the oak needs to be fine-tuned. Drink now-2024.

Wine Tasting Notes
AN/ 2 is a perfect introduction to the wines of Mallorca. This unique red is made from old vine Callet, Mantonegre, Fogoneu and Syrah fermented in a c ombination of stainless steel and concrete - macerated only briefly to retain the freshness and flavors of the fully ripe fruit. Aged for just over one year in a combination of French barriques and American oak, of which about one-third is new oak.

TASTING NOTES: Deep ruby-red in color, AN/2 has complex aromas of savory spices, wild raspberries, dark cherry fruit and a hint of violets and smokiness. On the palate the wine is silky and elegant with intense flavors of mature fruit. Well-balanced with a long finish.

65% Callet, 20% Mantonegre-Fogoneu, 15% Syrah
