Nice and intense cherry-red colour. Dense tears clean, bright and extremely well presented.
Intense and complex nose power, predominance of red berries (redcurrant and blueberry) with hints of strawberry yoghurt and candy, well integrated with sweet touches of toffee, caramel, cigar box, flowers (violet) and species. All flavours are seductive and in harmony.
The bouquet is powerful, excellent personality from the “terroir” with elegant tannins. In the aftertaste the fine oak notes make reappearance. Long finish in the mouth. It is a wine with a present and a nice future.
The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come exclusively from vines older than 60 years from La Horra. Plots are Sendino, Sapillo and Camino de los Frailes. Soils are clay and sandy with a small amount of limestone and at altitude between 800-840 meters. After being hand-harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tank of 7.500 L, with two to four days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation taking place in barrels. The wine is aged for sixteen months in new 500 L French oak barrels. It is then aged an additional year in bottle before leaving the cellar.
The 2013 harvest was characterized by a medium yield production. The Climatology conditions were difficult, very fresh spring, very dry summer and wet winter. This vintage is very special and gives to the wines powerful fruit aromas, sweet tannins, intense colour and adequate acidity for aging into barrels accompanied by a proper degree of alcohol.
The 2013 vintage was qualified as GOOD.
We suggest decanting. This wine is ideally served at room temperature (16ºC) to accompany steak, venison and other hearty fare such as stews and roast, as hard cheeses as well.
