Bouquet of plums, violets, minerals. Tastes black cherry, currant, pomegranates. Wet sandstone and lavendar finish. Aged 20 months in oak barrels, yet the oak is subtle.


Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Parador Tempranillo - This virgin vineyard site was cleared and planted especially for the Parador project, from cuttings and plants originating from the Ribera del Duero and Rioja. The vineyard is planted at an elevation of 1000 feet and on a slope filled with sandstone rock. When observed by Alejandro Fernandez he remarked the site ‘looks like that which one would find in Spain'. Aged in one, two & three-year old French barrels 5 barrels kept separate from the Parador blend to highlight this special site. Medium-deep, plum and earth tones, backed by purple-red fruit nuances – Good acidity and compelling mouth-feel – Good structure for medium-term aging potential Excellent true varietal character. This wine is starting to show the complexity that develops as the vines mature.
