Bodegas Nekeas Vega Sindoa Red Blend Navarra Cabernet-Tempranillo 2009
The vineyards of Bodegas Nekeas, nestled in the rolling green hills and gentle slopes of the Valdizarbe valley, seem out of place with the bustling, vibrant nearby city of Pamplona.Ms. Concha Vecino, the most highly acclaimed woman winemaker in Spain, has created a superb wine by making a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Tempranillo. In terms of the wine a touch of leather and sweet spices on the nose draw your attention to the deep garnet color. On the palate you will find bright flavors of blackberries and currants followed by hints of chocolate and licorice which soften the well developed tannins on the long elegant finish.
Four and a half glasses
There's a richness barely hiding in the bouquet, a fruitful well-formed body, and a smooth exit. For $10.99 it'll blow your mind.
Pleasant wine. Some interesting flavors, but they are very short lived.
Concentrated, full of chocolate, wood and earth. A very interesting wine still drinking well.

Ruby-red. Varietally accurate redcurrant and cassis aromas are complicated by dried rose, tobacco and smoky minerals. Sweet red and dark berry flavors are brisk and sharply focused, with dusty tannins adding grip. Suave, pure and energetic on the finish, which echoes the red fruit qualities and becomes creamier with air.The 2006 Cabernet (60%)-Tempranillo (40%) is a bit more substantial. Dark ruby-colored, it offers aromas of spice box, black currants and blackberry. There is a solid core of fruit on the palate and 2-3 years of aging potential. The firm finish suggests that it will be at its best from 2010 to 2016.If you can get by the bell pepper and other Bordeaux-like herbal notes, this Cabernet-Tempranillo blend feels very good on the palate. There's no wayward or jagged acidity or tannic clamp, and the core flavors of cassis and black cherry, while nudged by green pepper and herbs, are solid. Finishes with richer flavors of cough syrup, cola and menthol. Not for everyone, but shows integrity and core power. - M.S.
A delightful combination, this Cabernet-Tempranillo from Spain's northern Navarra region is full of juicy berry fruit. Soft and smooth with dark fruits and an international, fruit-forward approach.
