    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine displays a bright and clear cherry color with bright rims. Its ripe fruit, its deep balsamic freshness with cocoa and cakes can be easily appreciated. Retro nasally, one can feel spicy and exotic woods touches. ARTADI Pagos Viejos tannins are silky and ripe, intermingled with fresh ripe fruit: blackberry and blackcurrant. Its finish is amazingly fair and lingering.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Already complex both aromatically and on the palate, it has superb materials while appearing to be more structured than the 2004. Purchasers will need to be a bit more patient with this 2005 and should consider drinking the 2005 Vinas de Gain in the interim. Kudos to Bodegas Artadi for this tour de force!

    Ruby-red. Smoky raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by minerals, lavender and rooty sassafras. Suave red and dark berry flavors are complicated and deepened by exotic spicecake and sweet licorice. Impressively integrated tannins add gentle support. Pulls off the trick of outstanding concentration with finesse and finishes with superb precision and length. While still young, this is lovely today.
