Artadi Rioja Pagos Viejos 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Eponymous old vines, some approaching their half century, punctuate the gentlelimestone hillsides of Rioja Alavesa. The quality of the Tempranillo grapes ishigh beyond dispute, but they are still treated to the rigours of six sortingtables in the quest for perfection, an on-going process as they are currentlymid-way through their ageing in new Allier barriques. The tasting of the winespre-assemblage from 6 different sites revealed astonishing differences from thevarious microclimates; the finished article is greater than the sum of itsparts;

Dunkles Purpur-Rot. In der Nase Toastnoten, Veilchen, schwarze Kirschen, Heidelbeeren. Am Gaumen sehr konzentriert, blumig, fruchtig, sehr schöne Struktur, reife Tannine, elegant und gehaltvoll. Ein langes, aromatisches Finish.

This briliant Rioja is purple almost black and very opaque with little transition to the rim. The nose opens with blackberry a bouquet of violet and lavender followed by sweet cherry graphite and wet stone. Rich and layered with dense fruit the palate offers loads of spice while the mid palate is lifted with a brooding tannic structure. Overall the wine is very refined and has complexity throughout. The wine is a monster at this point so I suggest letting this age another 5-6 years b

This briliant Rioja is purple almost black and very opaque with little transition to the rim. The nose opens with blackberry a bouquet of violet and lavender followed by sweet cherry graphite and wet stone. Rich and layered with dense fruit the palate offers loads of spice while the mid palate is lifted with a brooding tannic structure. Overall the wine is very refined and has complexity throughout. The wine is a monster at this point so I suggest letting this age another 5-6 years before considering a bottle and then easily enjoy the following 20. A fantastic tempranillo. Jeff Loo.
