Floral and candied, with rosy, fresh, acid-based fruit. Very precise and tight, with size and zest. Opens a bit on the palate to show a softer, chocolaty edge. But overall it’s a fruity, concentrated ride of raspberry and cherry. Imported by Table 31 Imports
From a hot year, this wine adheres to tradition. It’s 85% Tempranillo with Mazuelo and Graciano, so it’s straight from central casting. The wine offers clean red-fruit flavors that pop across the palate, and the finish is racy and spicy. Not a show-stopper but worth stopping for.
Ultra purple and sort of gummy and confected. But it’s also pretty solid in the mouth, with tannin instead of flatness holding things together. Tastes like sweet dark plums and candy, while a hint of black coffee darkness enters on the finish.
