Wine Advocate(2007 Vintage) Bodegas y Vinedos Pujanza's 2007 Pujanza is 100% Tempranillo sourced from a 40+-year-old vineyard and aged for 16 months in 33% new French oak. Purple-colored with aromas of wood smoke, pencil lead, spice box, violets, black cherry, and blackberry, on the palate it displays outstanding volume, layers of fruit, savory flavors, some elegance, and a lengthy finish. It has the structure to evolve for another 1-2 years and will offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2022.
International Wine Cellar(2001 Vintage) Deep red-ruby. Deep, rather syrah-like aromas of black raspberry, smoked meat, bacon fat, gunflint and minerals. Smoky and deep; less fruity than the regular 2001 bottling but larger-scaled and more concentrated. Notes of bitter cherry and tar, with an element of dried fruits. Finishes with strong but ripe tannins that dust the front teeth. Both of these wines were aged in new French oak and bottled without filtration.
