    Region: Rioja, Spain

    Varietal: Tempranillo

    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 91642

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is stainless-steel fermented for approximately 22 days, then transferred to 98% new French Allier and 2% American Oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is then aged for 14 months. The wine is lightly fined, and then bottled unfiltered.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Focused and balanced, this elegant red delivers plum, licorice and vanilla flavors, with fresh acidity and floral and mineral notes over fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2012. 3,000 cases imported.

    The 2004 Allende is tighter on the nose compared to the 2003, with raspberry and crushed strawberry fruit, licorice and a touch of mango emerging in the background. The palate is medium bodied with ripe tannins, crisp acidity and weight that build to a composed, anise-tinged finish that is fresh and lively. The 2004 would benefit from more bottle age and remains a great Rioja wine. Drink 2014-2022.

    Stylish and alluring nose; quite sexy. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrel, so the wine has mouthfeel and richness. Yet it’s a juicy, friendly, fruit-forward style of Tempranillo, one that finishes with mocha and wood-driven spice notes.

    Ruby-red. Intense cherry, red berries and spices on the nose, with a strong mineral accent. Fresh and lively in the mouth, with exuberant raspberry and strawberry flavors tinged by a floral nuance. Finishes with bright, nervy red fruit tones and very good length.

    Especially this one. Elegant, refined, well structured, beautiful cherry and raspberry notes with a touch of cedar and spice notes. Just really fing good, if you'll excuse me. GREAT 'table' wine in that it goes with a wide variety of food. Served it with a slightly spicy Spanish stew (chorizo, saffron, beef, bacon, pimento, wine) which worked well...but would be great with many other foods.
