Condado Haza 2005
Condado de Haza is another Alejandro Fernandez (of Pesquera fame) property also located in Ribera del Duero. Purple-colored it offers up fragrant aromas of cedar tobacco black currants and blackberry. There is a supple mouth-feel and generous cherry and black fruit flavors and enough ripe tannins to ensure good longevity. Drink this hedonistic effort now and over the next 10-12 years. WS

Nice wine, but a bit youg. Should be better in 2010-2011.
Excelent, a no miss
how can I buy it? I'm in Shanghai now.
Great Spanish wine and when you factor in the price, it is unbeatable. 4.5
External Reviews for Condado Haza
This traditional-style red has a strong earthy note, but matches it with ripe plum, coffee and tobacco flavors. It has remarkable concentration; muscular tannins need food for balance.
Saturated bright ruby. Superripe aromas of raspberry, espresso, cherry skin and black licorice. Chewy, deep and highly concentrated; youthfully tight but with no rough edges. The sappy flavors of black raspberry, mocha and spices show lovely verve. Finishes very long and aromatic, with building tannins.
Inky violet. Perfumed, pure red and dark berry aromas are brightened by zesty minerality. Taut, youthfully firm raspberry and bitter cherry flavors offer excellent cut and thrust. Finishes with suave tannins and outstanding persistence. Impressively balanced and much more about delicacy and insinuation than power. An understated, elegant wine that really clings to the palate.
This red packs a lot of flavor on a supple frame. Black cherry, blackberry, smoke, mineral and espresso notes show focus and depth, backed by firm but well-integrated tannins that dissolve on a finely etched, floral-scented finish. Drink now through 2018.
This balanced red marries sweet, toasty oak and ripe plum and blackberry flavors in a muscular yet luscious texture. The long finish echoes with black fruit and spices. Best from 2003 through 2010.
The 2001 Tinto, which is aged 15 months in American oak (most of it new), exhibits a deep ruby/purple color in addition to a rich perfume of graphite intermixed with blackberries, black currants, and flowers. Full-bodied, elegant, rich and pure, with loads of fruit, abundant glycerin, and a long, concentrated finish, it is still unevolved and primary, but reveals tremendous potential.
