Viña Magaña Tempranillo Blend Navarra Dignus 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Dignus an estate-bottled wine made by Bodegas Viña Magaña in the Navarra DO, just northeast of Rioja. Spanish wine aficionados who consider Navarra strictly a source for bulk wines would do well to reflect on what owner Juan Magaña has accomplished. Thirty years ago, Juan had a vision. After researching the best wines in the world, he decided to grow Bordeaux grapes in Navarra, with its specific Pomerol-like terroir. He bought Merlot cuttings from a nursery that sold to famous châteaux in St. Emilion and Pomerol, most notably the hallowed Château Pétrus. Juan's bodega was a pioneer in Navarra and over the years has become a reference point for quality in the region. The 100-hectare (247 acre) estate is located just south of the Ebro River. The Latin word dignus means dignified. Of the five districts in Navarra, Ribera Baja is the district rich with limestone and where Viña Magaña is located. This unique soil is one of the reasons why Viña Magaña wines are among the most sought after by collectors. The mineral identity and the naturally low pH of the limestone soil combine to give Dignus an ability to age for many years.

The entry-level 2004 Dignus is composed of 50% Tempranillo, 25% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak. Dark ruby colored, it offers up a fragrant nose of wood smoke, toast, mineral, black cherry, black currant and licorice. Fruit-forward, light in tannin, and easy-going, this tasty wine has no hard edges. Drink it over the next 4-6 years. It is an excellent value.

Ruby-red. Initially reduced nose opens to show a deep dark berry personality. Ripe blackberry and cherry flavors are supported by solid tannins that carry through the finish. Leaves a sweet impression, along with espresso and licorice qualities. This needs air.
