Pujanza Norte 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Pujanza Norte is sourced from the 2.2-hectare vineyard El Norte that he planted 15 years ago as a teenager. The wine is 60% Tempranillo and 40% other varieties aged for 14 months in new French oak and bottled unfiltered. Opaque purple-hued, it has an alluring bouquet of pain grille, mineral, scorched earth, espresso, leather, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur. Opulent, layered, and powerful on the palate, the wine is thick, rich, and structured for the long haul. This super-lengthy wine will evolve for 6-8 years and drink superbly through 2035...94" -WA 02/08"Saturated ruby-red. Incredibly perfumed nose offers an exotic, room-filling bouquet of black raspberry, candied cherry, Asian spices, gingerbread and licorice. Pliant, juicy dark berry flavors are liqueur-like in depth and power but at the same time energetic, with tangy mineral lift and back-end snap. Picks up exotic black cardamom and cinnamon on the impressively pure and focused finish. This is extremely seductive...93" IWC 09/08
