    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Artadi estate was created in 1985 by the dynamic visionary winemaker, Juan Carlos Lopez de la Calle. His objective and vision was to seek and nurture the concept that Tempranillo, when cultivated at high altitudes, low-cropped, and from old vines, produces extraordinarily rich, deeply colored, and profound wines. This, coupled with specific barrel treatment (with minor American oak influences) produces one of Rioja's most exciting new wines. Artadi is about purity of deeply extracted fruit with almost Burgundian textures, sheer power, complexity, and startling finesse! The results have have been astounding.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aged 18 months in 100% new French oak from 75-year old Tempranillo vines, the 2001 Pagos Viejos is one of Spain’s greatest wines. A singular red of extraordinary stature and intensity, it exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color as well as a luxurious bouquet of lead pencil shavings, black and blue fruits, espresso roast, and floral notes. This full-bodied, dense 2001 possesses layers of flavor, a sweet integration of tannin and wood, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. Drink this riveting Rioja between 2005-2015

    Bright red-ruby. Flamboyant nose combines cassis, black pepper and smoky French oak. Sweet on the palate but with lovely cut, thanks to firm acidity. flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes with building tannins and strong oakiness.

    Fantastic modern style Rioja... made from a blend of Tempranillo from their oldest vineyards and aged in French oak... big and well-balanced, it is drinkable now or you can keep in the cellar for another 10 years. Very Special.
