Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Wine Review The attractive, medium dark ruby/purple-colored 2010 exhibits an excellent texture, abundant fruit and peppery garrigue, lavender and kirsch notes. Medium to full-bodied and ripe, it seems to grow in stature and complexity as it sits in the glass. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. -Robert Parker Wine Notes Vineyards: Organic vineyards in Méntrida with varying exposures. Age of Vines: 10-30 years. Harvest: Hand picked in small cases. Vinification: Whole clusters with the stem removed placed in stainless steel containers, cold pre-fermentation maceration (2-5 days), gentle extraction (pigeage à pied) , maceration between 15 and 20 days. Natural malolactic fermentation in barrels. Aging: 10 months in French oak barrels

Expert Reviews
  • Robert Parker
    (2010 Vintage) The 2010 Sotorrondero in a blend of 75% Garnacha from younger vines, though still 40-50 years old, and 25% Syrah from 12-year-old vines. The fermentation takes place in steel with malolactic in 300 or 500-liter barrels. It has a fresh, lifted bouquet of dark cherry, crushed strawberry and dark chocolate that is well defined and focused. The palate has a dash of white pepper on the entry as well as layers of chocolate-tinged dark berry fruit with a keen thread of acidity, although it finishes just a little abruptly. Nevertheless, this is a highly satisfying, full-bodied wine. Drink now-2017.
