Tasting Note

Intense cherry colour. The richest and most complex of the Sierra Cantabria wines, this comes from a poor, stoney site and it shows in the intensity of the aromas and flavours. Plush, spicy and peppery with layers of black fruits complemented by oak, fine tannins and a flourish of acidity.

  • 96/100 - 2016 was a cool and slow-ripening year, and the 2016 El Bosque reflects those qualities, combining power and elegance. It's Tempranillo from only one vineyard, planted in 1973. It fermented in new French and central European oak barrels for 18 months. It's a serious and structured wine that has a subtle nose, with integrated oak, combining power and elegance. It has very good freshness, and it has the floral and red fruit character of the 2016 vintage. This wine should have a long life in bottle. I love the 2016 vintage here. 2016 seems to be a truly spectacular year that managed to provide quantity, and quality and perhaps the higher yields produced lighter wines that are very aromatic and elegant and come through as very expressive.
