Benjamin Romeo Tempranillo Blend Rioja Contador 2007
[The Wine Advocate] Contador (a meager 200 bottles for the American market) was sourced from three tiny parcels ranging in age from 65-80 years. It was fermented in new French barriques aged for 12 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The result is a spectacular wine with a remarkably expressive nose of pain grille lead pencil spice box espresso black currants and wild blueberries that roars from the glass. The opulent palate is mouth-coating thick and full-flavored with the structure well-concealed by the masses of fruit. This legend in the making while irresistible now should evolve slowly over 2-3 decades much like a first growth Bordeaux and still be drinking at age 50.
