Light purple. Blackberry and mulberry scents, with cracked pepper and pungent herbs adding complexity. Brisk dark berry flavors are enlivened by taut minerality, giving the wine a refreshing quality. Focused, pure and sweet on the finish.
The 2004 Mibal Seleccion is a barrel selection of the best lots and spent 14 months in French oak. It further raises the bar with its saturated, glass-coating purple color, super-expressive, exotic nose of pain grille, spice box, wild blueberry, smoked meat, and licorice. On the palate, this thick and opulent wine has gobs of spicy black fruit flavors, enough structure for 4ndash;6 years of further evolution, and a beautifully delineated, long finish. It should drink well through 2020. A true ldquo;garagerdquo; Bodegas (the winery is in a garage in the town of Roa), these small production cuvees of 100% Tempranillo are uniformly outstanding.
