Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Cuvée El Palomar 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

This symbiosis of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from limestone soil located at an altitude of 750 m makes for an exceptional, generous and original Cuvée. Its texture is smooth and meaty, fills the palate and offers a long and potent aromatic finish. It is aged for eighteen months to strengthen its character. The contrast between its heat and sweetness represents the perfect expression of one of the best microclimates to be found in the most prestigious winemaking region in Spain.

We have a wide variety of soils, with representations of most of the world’s best varieties, and state-of-the-art technology (meteorological stations, anti-frost towers, etc.) The rest of the estate is comprised of the winery, 12th century abbey, a farm, forest and bush.

Nice deep burgundy in color. The nose shows pure cassis, green pepper(light), black earth, and minerals. Soft tannins that coat the mouth with a medium overall acidity. Flavors develop further in the mouth giving way to fresh herbs, cherry, violets, cassis, and more minerals. Nice wine. 4/5 [NR]
