Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Rívola 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Eine intensive Fruchtaromatik (Erdbeeren, Zwetschgenkompott) entfaltet sich im Glas. Sie verheisst ein genussreiches Erlebnis! Im Gaumen dann Stoff - saftige, weiche Tannine - gepaart mit einer fruchtigen Struktur und einer recht opulenten, leckeren Textur. Das Finale, anhaltend, fruchtig und von Ausbauaromen (Zimt, Vanille, Lebkuchengewürz) begleitet, hält, was die Nase ankündigt: Rivola ist ein gelungener Rotwein, der auf Anhieb gefällt.

The Abadía Retuerta Estate occupies over 700 hectares of terrain, and its name comes from the combination of two words that define and describe the territory: Rívula (river bank) and Torta (twisting, winding). Over 204 hectares of vineyards are spread out on hillsides ranging in altitude from a maximum 850 metres down to the southern bank of the Duero River. 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.

Earthy, barnyard nose with a hint of fruit and fig. Palate is nice and deep with structured but severe tannins. Fresh black fruits and leather with licorice lingering on the finish. Slightly hot but not unpleasantly so.

Upon opening had an intriguing manure nose...breathed and tasted like a standard spanish wine. nothing special.

Dark and rich red color to this wine. The nose straight out the bottle shows oaky chocolate notes with rich raspberry and black raspberry aromas. In the mouth this wine has firm tannis that are soft and lush with a palate showing wound up black raspberry, and chocolate espresso notes. Nice wine but needs some air. Day two: The bacon fat comes out with a more layered an rich display of cherries and raspberries. Chocolate and roasted coffee too. Really opens up nicely and makes me wish I had some to lay down for a year or two. 4/5 [NR]

Licorice and chocolate. Some leatheriness. Decent with an ok finish. (Tasted as part of a marathon at the Wines from Spain trade event.)

Rivola is brilliant ruby in color with violet highlights. On the nose, the wine is fresh and generously fruity, with impressions of ripe raspberries, strawberries and wild cherries offset by notes of

From the Sardon del Duero, next door to Ribera, Abadia Retuerta showcases rich, ripe Tempranillo fruit in this well-priced, full-bodied red. Ideal with leg of lamb or beef roasts.
