Sadly probably like the label on here more than the vino. Felt pretty thin without much sweet fruit shining through upon opening. Coming back to it a few hours later, had started to open up.

This is Descendientesrsquo; so-called starter Bierzo, but it rises above the tried and true value zone to exhibit mineral, crushed violet petals, graham cracker and pure dark-fruit aromas. The palate is smooth and plush, with lush black-fruit flavors, easygoing tannins and some creamy length. Itrsquo;s not as vivid as the 2005, but itrsquo;s still mighty impressive.

The 2006 Petalos del Bierzo is purple-colored with a fragrant nose of violets, lavender, mulberry, and blueberry. Ripe, supple, and sweetly fruited, it will evolve for 2ndash;3 years and drink well through 2015.

Glänzendes Granat-Rubin. Himbeeren und rote Johannisbeeren in der zart parfümierten Nase, Zimt und etwas Gewürznelke runden das Bouquet ab. Fruchtbetonter Pinot noir-Gaumen mit einer guten Frische, Maulbeeren und etwas Milchschokolade, leicht spürbare Gerbstoffe, gute Struktur und Länge.

The entry-level wine (what an entry!) is the 2007 Petalos del Bierzo, 100% Mancia from vineyards ranging in age from 40 to 90 years. It spends its first few weeks in new French barriques before transfer to seasoned oak for 6 to 10 months. Saturated purple in color, it offers up a super-fragrant bouquet of smoke, violets, mineral, wild blueberry, and black raspberry. Fruity yet complex on the palate, it has superb depth,grip, and balance. This sexy effort can be enjoyed over the next six years but only hedonists need apply. Descendientes de Jose Palaciosandrsquo; first vintage was 1999. The men in charge are Richardo Perez and legendary vigneron Alvaro Palacios.

Purpur Farbe. In der Nase intensive, fruchtige und beerige Aromen. In der Nase mineralisch, mit viel Frucht, Brombeeren, Heidelbeeren und Lavendel. Sehr komplexer Wein mit einem fruchtigen, langen Abgang.

Ruby-red. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are underscored by pungent minerality and rose; this smells like a great Chambolle-Musigny. Sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors are enlivened by brisk acidity and gain sweetness with air. Very suave, focused and strikingly pure wine with superb complexity and poise.
