Tasting Note:

The 2008 San Vicente displays the lifting red fruit and Burgundian mix of elegance and sweetness that are hallmarks of the San Vicente style, offering flavours of raspberry, cranberry, plum, redcurrant, cherry, coffee bean, truffle and sweet spice. Incredibly well-put-together Rioja of great distinction and refinement. This is a great cuvée from the fabulous La Conoca single vineyard. 100% Tempranillo “Peludo” (“hairy” in English) which is a special, very low yielding clone of Tempranillo; only one kilo of grapes is produced per vine. Aged for 20 months in new oak, 90% French 10% American.
