The grapes for this wine come from a 72-acre vineyard called "Finca Los Juncares," which was planted in 1957. Only after very careful vineyard selections, the best vines of Tempranillo grapes are hand-harvested in small boxes to prevent bruising. Malolactic fermentation occurs in barrel, and the wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months and then bottled unfiltered.
likes to breath a bit but very smooth and complex, light, but with a slight acidic tang. can taste the hint of vanilla.
truly excellent for the price. nice vanilla oak that is pretty well integrated. would buy again.
rich dark fruit jam, bold Yet softened by oak. heavy tannins
Mild, smooth, lingering finish
Wine BuyerThe Tempranillo harvested from these vineyards produces a deeply colored, full flavored wine with hints of ripe plums, black cherries and sweet exotic spices. The supple tannins make this wine a perfect compliment to many robust meat dishes and can age in the bottle well for many years.
