Abadia Retuerta Sardon de Duero Seleccion Especial 2009
External Reviews for Abadia Retuerta Sardon de Duero Seleccion Especial
These are impressive wines although in terms of value for money I would head straight to the 2009 Seleccion Especial a blend of 75% Tempranillo 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. It has a rounded iodine-tinged bouquet with great purity and panache the oak seamlessly integrated with scents of black coffee developing over time. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy texture crisp acidity and very fine tannins. It has a velvety caressing texture with blackberry cassis and espresso towards the precise supple finish. This is an accomplished flavor-packed wine that should repay a few months cellaring. Drink now 2013-2018. -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
