Condado Haza 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

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

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 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.


External Review

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.
