Food Pairings for Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Rívola
Deep maroonish red with aromas of black cherry, vanilla, chocolate and dark ripe fruit. Big tannins that feel fine on the tongue with a medium acidity. Soft and elegant overall with flavors of cherry, anise and minerals. 3.5/5 [NR]
Deep inky purple in color. The nose shows anise, minty chocolate, and a rich deep raspberry character. Light funky earth and pencil lead round out this wine. Rich in the mouth with high acidity and firm fine tannins. The palate is expansive and interesting, showing raspberry, black raspberry, anise, some toasted oak, and blueberries. Alcohol is noticeable and a bit strong, but not distracting. 3.5/5 [NR]
slightly browning purple in color, as if aging had begun. Cedar, anise, fennel and a hint of chocolate in the nose. Dry oaky tannins, vanilla, and a little bit of berries in the palate. This really opened up the second day- upon opening this was disappointingly thin. The finish is long, a bit tart, but lingering and pleasant.
External Reviews for Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Rívola
This plush red masks muscular tannins under thick layers of plum and boysenberry fruit. Itrsquo;s smooth and harmonious. Best from 2005 through 2010.
Bright red-ruby color. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice, mint and baking spices. Supple and smooth but bright, with dark berry flavors complemented by a hint of dark chocolate. Softer and more fruit-driven than the comparatively backward 2001. Perked up by well-integrated acids and the winersquo;s typical minty component.
Tight licorice and smoke wrap around a mineral backbone in this affordable Spanish red. Great structure and big black berry and black cherry fruits balance all the vivacious spice and smoldering flavors. This is not your average under $15 wallflower!
AGEING: 12 months in mixed casks of French and American oak. DES. ORIGIN: Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León. GRAPE VARIETIES: * 60% Tempranillo * 40% Cabernet Sauvignon ALCOHOL VOLUME: 13 % SERVING TEMPERATURE: 14-16 ºC DESCRIPTION: Intense black cherry red. Very intense nose, roast aroma with hints of clove, liquorice and coffee. Slight vanilla taste. A smooth attack, with structure and blended tannins. Incredibly aromatic on the palate, expressive and fresh. In the mouth it offers three times the intensity than it does in the nose. Easy and nice finish. A very delicate and pleasant wine. GASTRONOMY: Ideal with Iberian cold meats and loin carpaccio with non-oily fish and free-range poultry… WINEMAKING PROCESS: The grapes come from soils that are predominantly calcareous, with parts that are sandy with pebbles. This wine combines musts from various types of quite prolonged maceration, and also from cold pre-fermentation macerations. The wine has spent twelve months in new oak barrels to bring out the tannins and emphasise its light touches of vanilla.
