Dominio Buenavista Veleta Nolados 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Aggressive bitter herb and root notes that recall Cab Franc, earthy, sassafras, really feral on the nose with notes of game, dried flowers, and apricot liqueur Rich yet fairly soft with medicinal tinged red cherry fruit. There’s a lot of subtle detail here. The fruit is quite intense yet balanced and the herbal, medicinal, cocoa and spice tones are subtle and well integrated. Nice ripe tannins, good integrated acidity, a nice intensity of slightly bitter red cherry on the moderately long finish with a mineral note on the finale. A distinctive blend that is slightly assertive but perfectly scaled. Lovely wine 91pts

Solid aroma of wood, pepper, herbs, dark berries, a bit of lemon, chili peppers, and dark chocolate. The mouth is moderately acidic and tannic, feels a little bit young. Very complex, strong, and fun to drink. Would go well with pork tenderloin.
