Winemaker Notes

On the nose, powerful aromas of red berries, specifically raspberries and cherries, and plum. Floral hints, mixed with tobacco are evident as well. It is very well-structured on the palate with impeccable balance. A rich, elegant, long finish expresses excellent acidity. Toasted notes of exotic spices linger on the tongue.

Critical Acclaim

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby. Complex, mineral-driven bouquet displays red- and blackcurrant, cherry pit, licorice and minerals, plus a hint of black cardamom. Brighter raspberry and floral qualities come up with air and carry onto the palate, which offers a seductive spicy character. The persistent finish is sweet, precise and gently smoky. Complex now but also balanced to age.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The opaque purple-colored 2005 Bembibre delivers a nose of mineral, scorched earth, spice box, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry. Structured and firm on the palate, this intense, concentrated, and harmonious effort will evolve for 3-5 years and drink well from 2013 to 2020.

Dominio de Tares
Dominio de Tares was formed in 2000 by an enthusiastic group of local investors, leading a quality resurgence following years of neglect in the area. Given Bierzo’s ideal, fresh/mineral terroir and the old Mencía vines, quality at the highest level was an immediate possibility. Amancio Fernández, Bierzo native and one of Spain’s brightest young enologists, brought intimate knowledge of local viticulture to bear, working from the start with the area’s most serious growers in order to obtain the very best fruit.
