Pago de Los Capellanes El Picón 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

96 Points, Wine Spectator: "This big, expressive red marries polish and depth. Black cherry, plum and currant flavors are fresh and juicy, backed by tar, mineral and tobacco notes that add a savory element. The firm tannins are well-integrated and lively acidity keeps this fresh through the spicy finish. Drink now through 2025. " 2016

Pago de los Capellanes is located near the village of Pedrosa de Duero, nestled deep in the heart of the Ribera del Duero region of Spain, home to some of the finest grapes of the region. In the past, the estate had a mere few thousand vines, grown in the traditional goblet style. The Rodero – Villa family, complemented by a group of exceptional wine professionals, have followed their personal approach to making wine. This has brought into being today’s Pago de los Capellanes estate, fulfilling a dream that began in 1980. Presently more than two hundred and fifty acres (one hundred hectares) of vineyards, grown in the modern style of trained vines, surround the winery. The grape varieties include Tempranillo, known locally as Tinto Fino, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.   Actively reduced harvest yields allow for greater quality control, as well as the increased supervision of all bottlings. We only allow our vineyards to produce 4,460 pounds of grapes per acre (5,000 kilograms of grapes per hectare), far below the 6,250 pounds per acre (7,000 kg. / ha.) permitted by the regional Ribera del Duero Regulatory Council, a clear example of how we strive for quality in our raw materials. All the wines marketed under the Pago de los Capellanes brand are made with the same care; our red wines show their individual character, the result of tranquil aging, care and patience. Read less

Sweet, smooth tannins coat the palate. Full-bodied and persistant with an array of complex flavours.Pago de los Capellanes has a recently expanded vineyard and a stunning modern winery, but the name itself shares its long history, dating back to the 14th century, when the God-fearing populace of nearby Pedrosa de Duero donated parcels of land to the local chaplains in recognition of their religious administrations. The winery has been expanded, but here too there is respect for the past: from the outset, the architecture has been deliberately designed to showcase the remarkable 800-year-old walnut trees at the buildings centre.Grapes: 100% TempranilloRegion: Spain / Ribera del DueroMaker: Paco CasasNotes: A deep, dark cherry-coloured with extraordinary intensity and complexity. Blackberries and floral notes are detected first on the nose. The fruit is well-integrated with the wood, displaying spicy aromas from the French oak; cinnamon, leather, tobacco, truffle and black liquorice. Sweet, smooth tannins coat the palate and the mouth is full-bodied and persistant with an array of complex flavours.Serve: At 16-18c with grilled and roasted red meats.ABV: 14.5%
