A combination of altitude and soil helps to bring out the very best in this old vine Tempranillo, and creates a fruit forward wine with structure and earth notes. Dark cherry-red, with an intense purplish color round the edges. Aromas of ripe forest fruit, cocoa, violets and a balsamic flourish against a smoky background. Flavorsome, fresh, balanced and meaty, with good fruit on the palate. Forest fruits take the lead for the overture.
The 2009 Mano a Mano (100% Tempranillo) was aged in new French oak for 7 months. It ups the ante in its display of smoke, meat, black and blue fruits that are surprisingly complex for the humble asking price. Sweetly-fruited on the palate with a bit of structure, it will continue to deliver the goods for several more years.
