Bodegas Pedro Regalado Embocadero 2009
The 2009 Embocadero spent 14 months in new French oak. Wood smoke, mineral, spice box, incense, and blackberry inform the nose of this dense, plush effort. Give it another 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it from 2014 to 2024.
This selection from 45-year-old tempranillo vines shows ripe black fruit in a powerful combination with warm chocolate and mocha coffee notes. The tannins are forceful, with a pronounced acidity that cuts the sweetness of the fruit. Deliciously wintry, warm and deep, this is a wine for rabbit stew.
