External Reviews for Estancia Piedra Azul
Intense purple color with a prominent nose full of ripened red fruit. Powerful and rich, with a fresh, fruity taste and long finish.
The 2005 Azul is an outstanding value, one of the best in my Spanish tastings. Made from 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) and aged in stainless steel, this dark ruby-colored wine offers a peppery, spicy, fruity nose, lots of crunchy red fruit flavors, and ripe tannins leading to a surprisingly long, pure finish. Drink this easygoing effort over the next 1andndash;3 years.
A Spanish treasure! This wine hasn’t met a grilled meat it didn’t showcase. The nose leans toward vegetal aromas and intense jam. Branching out in the mouth to blackberries, boysenberry, and a hint of mocha with strong tannins, the finish is protracted and rich. Again, grilling is really the way to go with this beauty. At this price it’s a steal!
