External Reviews for El Puntido
Inky ruby. Earthy cherry and dark berry scents are accompanied by brooding notes of printer's ink, graphite and licorice root. Starts off solid and a bit clenched but aeration brings out sweeter kirsch and floral pastille flavors. The finish shows bitter cherry, chocolate and espresso. Give this some cellar time.
The 2004 El Puntido was sourced from its namesake vineyard planted in 1975. The wine was aged in new French oak for 18 months. Purple-colored, it offers an expressive nose of pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, black cherry, and blackberry. Firm and structured on the palate, this nicely balanced wine has ample spicy fruit but a slightly compressed finish. It has enough structure to evolve for 3–5 years and should drink well through 2020.
