Bright violet. Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, blackberry, Asian spices and potpourri. Suave and silky, with mineral-driven flavors of red berries and candied flowers lifted by spices. Not a powerful wine but nicely focused and vibrant, showing lovely inner-mouth perfume. Fine-grained tannins play a supporting role, allowing the floral finishing flavors to stand out. This is a superb value.
The 2008 Brozal is a field blend of 80% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, and 10% Garnacha aged for 10 months in 50% new French oak. Deep crimson-colored, it offers up aromas of damp earth, mineral, espresso, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry. Layered on the palate with ample succulent fruit, it has excellent concentration, faultless balance, and enough structure to evolve for 3–5 years. It will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2023.
