Tinto Emilio Moro "Resalso" 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Advocate: ...made from the estate's younger Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) vines and aged in French oak for 4 months. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a nicely perfumed nose of violets, spice box, leather, and black cherry. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with plenty of savory fruit, an easy-going personality, and excellent depth. This lengthy effort actually has 2-3 years of aging potential but can be enjoyed now. It over-delivers in a big way.

Saturated rubine in color, watery and thin in the mouth, some off flavor, has some dryness and complexity overall.

Vivid ruby. Blackberry and dark cherry aromas are complemented by notes of tobacco and licorice. Juicy, nicely concentrated dark fruit flavors are lifted by tangy acidity and pick up smokiness with air. Shows very good clarity on the gently tannic, spicy finish, with the cherry note echoing. This will reward at least another couple years of patience. A core of cherry and plum gives way to tar, mineral and hoisin sauce notes in this dense red. This shows solid tannins, but remains graceful through the spicy finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases imported. The entry-level 2009 Fincas Resalso is 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) from some of the younger vines on the estate. The wine was aged 4 months in French oak. Aromas of cedar, mineral, spice box, violets, and black fruits inform the nose of this forward, supple, succulent effort from the great 2009 vintage. This juicy, uncomplicated effort which finishes with no hard edges, is an excellent value mean...
