Bodegas Sierra Salinas Mo 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Red cherry color with a shade of violet reflections, in nose it shows clean notes of red fruit (raspberry) will assembled with its wood (discrete toast and black pepper). Nice and fresh medium structure, well balanced sweet and mature tannins. Winemakers Notes

The building was based on two main principles: thermal isolation and the exploitation of gravity in order to make the wine racking easier. The first aim has been achieved by placing the oak barrels in the cool basement cellar of the building and also utilizing the air conditioning system during hottest seasons. The wine making area is north-facing with the purpose of assisting in the control of the high temperatures reached in this suntrap area. A second main aim tries to ensure the integrity of the grapes by avoiding any pump racking. The winery consists of three heights, in such a way that the grapes take up the transformation as they start going down through the various levels of the building. The vinification plant is placed on the first floor, the pressing area on the second one and the bottling plant on the third (basement cellar). Read less

Dark rich deep pomegranate lacking brilliance but made up in color density. This is a bizarre and interesting wine in that the aromas make you doubt the first words that roll of your tongue as you describe the wine: apricots, orange zest, dark plum and spices that remind me of Ethiopian food - which is not a complaint considering it is one of my absolute favorite cuisines. However upon drinking it on the first day...it lost me. The acidity takes over and hides tannin. Not ideal, but on the second day, it relaxed allowing for the cassis, black cherries, ash and chocolate to come alive.

75%Monastrell 25% Garnacha Tintorera Deep cherry red color, with a nose that shows raspberry, rich wood notes, and as it opens black and white pepper. In the mouth big and rich with strong acidity, tannins a bit of bitterness on the finish. Well made but still needs some refinement. 3/5 [NR]
