100% Tempranillo from the Pesquera clones planted in 1998. Purity of fruit accompanies concentrated texture and weight, with excellent balance and expression enhanced by two years in bottle prior to release.
90 Points – Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar:
Dark ruby. Dark berries and cola on the fragrant, oak-spiced nose and in the mouth. Plush and expansive, with good finishing power and late-arriving, harmonious tannins.
90 Points – Ken’s Wine Guide:
This unfiltered Spanish Tempranillo opens with a mild oak and mild blackberry with a hint of black licorice. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black plum and black licorice blend with hints of minerality, old oak, and spice. The finish is dry and it sticky tannins show very nice length. This would pair well with slow cooked barbecue beef brisket.
