Trentadue Winery Supertuscan Blend Alexander Valley la Storia Cuvée 32 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a perfect marriage of the lean, food friendly acidity of the Sangiovese and the firm and juicy structure of the Merlot and Cabernet, resulting into a rich, yet nicely balanced wine that exhibits layers of lush, sweet black fruit flavors.

This is a nice Tempranillo. Lots of fruit but not as much tannin and acidity as I would have hoped. Its not a stunner but is a solid value.

The word dromos is not usually used in the English language, but it dates back to antiquity and means "doorway or grand entrance." Dromos could not possibly be appreciated in a single tasting, you need to decant this powerful "Super Tuscan" red wine. A great unfiltered wine from a selection of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, sangiovese, alicante and cabernet franc grapes, this wine can be described as nothing less than powerful 14.5% Vol. In the mouth, this blend of five grape varieties has great structure. Ruby red colour, aromas of intense black fruit, licorice, with hints of vanilla. Drying tannic finish, rich and incredibly complex, well rounded and a perfect balance... A gem! This wine is great with our veal scaloppine with mushrooms... !

estoy en este tiempo con vinos tempranillo monovarietales como preferidos. ya probe algunos cabernet, nebbiolo, merlot claro¡, shira, pocos eso si.... elegí al tempranillo como preferido por la suavidad. a mi esposa le gusta. por lo que tomamos desde hace algun tiempo de estos. asi que de este crianza 2006 tempranillo fue de gusto medio, ya que es menos dulce al paladar que otros... pero a mi me gusto que refleja un buen ejemplo de vino español, con todo lo que esto significa. español... serio, soleado, directo, con mucho que ofrecer. no se queda solo en lo dulce que la mayoria buscamos.... se supone...:)

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. There is nothing especially subtle about this flashy and very out-going wine, and finesse is not one of its strengths, but it offers up lots of optimally ripe cherry-like fruit with overtones of black-berries and plenty of sweet oak. It is full and fleshy in feel with a bit of pert, balancing acid checking its drift to sweetness, and, if not at all astringent, it claims just enough tannin to make a few years of aging worthwhile.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

The dark ruby-colored 2006 Milcampos Vinas Viejas spent eight months in new Hungarian and American oak. It exhibits an impressive nose of mineral, espresso, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a medium- to full-bodied wine with plenty of spicy black fruit, good concentration, enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, and a lengthy finish. Drink it from 2011 to 2018.

Bright fruit, complex spicy middle, nicely balanced. Flavors of pear and strawberry and a touch of honey on the finish, but dry, not sweet.

Komplexes Bukett nach reifen dunklen Beeren, dicht und vielschichtig. Feine Kräuternoten und Röstaromen. Elegant und kräftig zugleich, mit viel Kraft und Frucht. Sehr langer aromatischer Nachhall.

A delicious, concentrated red wine that's unoaked. This is a newcomer and we couldn't be more pleased with the quality of voluptuous wine. Very pure, full of dark fruits (currants, black cherries, blackberries) and floral spices on the finish.
