Tasting Note

Produced from a selection of the best grapes from Abadia Retuerta’s vineyards, this deep coloured, complex red combines the richness of Tempranillo, the elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon and the strength of Syrah. The nose is fresh and vibrant, full of ripe black and red fruits combined with lingering notes of balsamic, liquorice and sweet oak wood. The full bodied, creamy palate is structured by smooth tannins, juicy ripe fruits and a hint of cedar.

  • 92/100 - Fabulous balance between ripe black and red fruit aromas and pyrazines. The palate shows off round tannins and well-integrated oak. Brilliant stuff!

  • 92+/100 - The final blend is slightly different each year and in 2014 it was 70% Tempranillo, 17% Syrah and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon. The aging in barrel was slightly shorter, 11 months instead of 13. 2014 was a homogeneous vintage and they didn't need to use any Merlot, which in slightly warmer vintages does not work as nicely as in cooler ones. This wine changed from the 2010 vintage, as before that year they used quite a lot of oak and the wine was very oaky. They have now removed the excess, and the wines show more precision and purity. It's a little riper and concentrated than the 2013, with more clout but perhaps a little more predictability. This has all the ingredients to be a great commercial success.

    Expressive nose, with dark fruit, leather and liquorice. There is presence of oak but very balanced with the fruit. Full bodied, with a marked concentration, tannins are firm but there a lovely high acidity as back bone. This wine doesn't have too much of anything, just balanced and a great expression of Tempranillo!
