Condado de Haza Crianza # 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): Vivid raspberry, blackberry, anise and floral scents are fresh and pure. Juicy dark berry flavors are complemented by succulent herbs and dark chocolate, becoming sweeter with air. Leaves strong floral pastille and berry liqueur notes behind, finishing with excellent cut and precision. Very nicely focused wine.

Condado de Haza:

Alejandro Fernández discovered an abandoned hillside on the banks of the River Duero in the mid-1980s that seemed to bring together the ideal conditions to become one of the best vineyards of the region. It had a gentle southern-facing slope that ended in the river and different soils composed of gravel, clay and gypsum that promised to produce the nuances needed to create complex wines from Tempranillo grapes. Thus began an arduous three-year period of negotiations destined to purchase the small individual allotments that made up the hillside. The first 80 hectares were finally planted in 1989. Today the property, which is named after the nearby town of Haza, has a continuous covering of almost 200 hectares of excellent Tempranillo vines. Although small amounts of wine were produced in 1993, the 1994 vintage was the first that underwent full-scale commercialisation. Both vintages were mainly produced in the Pesquera facilities. It was only from 1995 that Condado de Haza became the “Château” Alejandro Fernández had dreamed of. It became a complete and self-sufficient winery encompassing the whole winemaking process from the vine to the bottle. Read less

This is quite bretty on the nose with tons of barnyardy complexity and notes of old wood and flowers. On the palate this is fresh with a pleasantly subtle bitterness to the cherry fruit. It’s easy styled and well balanced with black cherry and spice tones that drift from the mid-palate to the moderately long finish. The brett on the nose is going to be a huge turnoff to many. 87pts

Nice dark colour with lot of fruity aromas, coffee, tobacco and spicies, with vanila. Very well balanced but young with too liight body.

Smoky tasting, nice spanish wine. Wife and I both liked it but I would choose other wines at $29 while she would buy again at this price.

This is a bit closed initially. Nose is tight and muted at first as is the taste, though you can tell it will open shortly. Once it gets some air, deep cherry and cocoa on the nose. Palate opens to berries, a little leather and supple tannins. Nice wine, not overly complex it seems, but has nice burst of acidity at the end that really makes this a good food wine...try roast poultry or pork.

This deep purple-colored offering exhibits a brooding bouquet of blackberry, Asian spice and incense, framed by pain grille and mineral. On the palate meatiness and black pepper lead into a finish rich with ripe tannins, smooth texture and impeccable... John Koutsulis.
