Tasting Note:

From vineyards in the village of Abalos located close to the Sierra Cantabria mountains. Luckily most of these sites escape frost bite but they were picked on the early side nevertheless. Wonderful freshness and intensity, both controlled and tapered but with a twist of Mediterranean hearty black and red fruit, and it’s quite floral too. As the reduction blows off notes of violet and plum liqueur come to the fore. Compact and young, certainly, but it’s direct and energetic. Tempranillo with 12% Graciano. Aged 75% in 500L barrels and 25% in concrete. Bottled December 2018.
