    Winemaker's Notes:

    The origin of this wine begins with the selection from vineyards of more than 25 years of age. With this wine, start exhibiting the quality and balance of great wines. The style of this wine is characterized by a strong impression of red fruits and spices, in perfect harmony with the flavors of barrel aging.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Vinas de Gain is sourced from Tempranillo vines between 25 and 40 years of age and is matured in new, one- and two-year-old wood from several coopers. It has a very well-defined bouquet with crisp blackberry, cassis and licorice-scented fruit with fine minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with edgy tannins, crisp acidity and a lovely licorice, white pepper and citrus-fresh finish that is linear and nicely focused. Excellent. Drink 2014-2020.

    Oaky and generous on the nose, with earth, vanilla, dried cheese and blackberry notes. Feels cushioned and complete, with depth of feel and flavor; tastes of deep berry, mild herbs and finally a toasty wave of coffee and chocolate takes over. Impressive for a 2008.

    Bright ruby. Sexy, expressive aromas of dark berries and cherry-vanilla, with cracked pepper and pipe tobacco nuances adding complexity. Plush and supple in texture, with sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Soft tannins come on late and add grip to a long, sweet and smoky finish. This wine is approachable now, with a little aeration.
