Dieser Wein wurde erstmals 1995 vinifiziert, der damit eine neue Ära auf Finca Villacreces eingeläutet hat: dichte Aubergingenfarbe mit violetter Bordüre. Das Anfangs noch verhaltene Bukett offenbart nach dem Lüften Aromen von reifen, dunklen Waldbeeren, ergänzt mit Nuancen von Vanille-Schoten und Edelholz. Auf dem Gaumen von weicher Textur und mit enorm konzentrierter Frucht von Holunder und Brombeeren. Mit seiner Eleganz und den vielschichtigen Anklängen von Zartbitter-Schokolade, Havanna-Tabak und Kakao erinnert er an einen tollen grossen Bordeaux.

Purpurrote Farbe. In der Nase intensive Fruchtnoten. Am Gaumen Veilchen-, Mocca- und Kaffeenoten, Toast, Likör, wilde blaue und schwarze Beeren. Am Gaumen blumig, würzig, fruchtig mit schön integrierten Tanninen. Ein langer, vollmundiger Abgang.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93The 2005 Tinto is 86% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Merlot which went through malolactic fermentation in barrel and remained in French oak for another 16 months. Purple-colored, the aromatics reveal notes of mocha, coffee, smoke, violets, spice box, wild cherry, and blackberry. Smooth-textured, layered, and well-balanced, this superb effort will continue to evolve for several years and drink well through 2025.
