Lagar da Condesa Albarino
Brilliant pale gold in color, copious apples and pears infused with mouthwatering aromas of lemon, outstanding fruit with a touch of honey beautifully focused and mineral. The attack is rich and broad packed with ripe citrus concentration, dense and fleshy, very good acidity with a long finish.
Deep color that coats the glass and imparts aromas of brooding black fruits, licorice, espresso and pepper. Dense, savory and rich.
An attractive nose with dark cherry, where the ripe fruit and spicy aromas can be noticed in sequence as well as the mineral remembrances of the slate soils of the vineyard. On the palate, it is savoring, fruity, and elegant. Ready to drink now and shows big potential to improve over time.
Bodegas Atalaya Alaya Tierra
High, dense, dark cherry-colored robe with a purple rim. Impressive parade of aromas, featuring explosive notes of strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, vanilla, cocoa, Mediterranean herbs, tobacco, withered leaves, chalk, mineral and wet earth. Meaty and bold. On the palate are ripe fruit, toast, smoke and spices underpinned by some mineral notions. A fresh acidity, yummy tannins and an exceptionally long finish.
Juan Gil 18 Meses Blue Label
Purple/black in color, it proffers a nose of pain grille, graphite, earth notes, spice box, black fruits, and a hint of balsamic. It opens in the glass to reveal excellent density, savory flavors, plenty of spice and a lengthy, pure finish. It will evolve well for the next 2-3 years.
El Nido Clio
The wine exhibits a glass-coating opaque purple with an expressive nose of pain grille, underbrush, brier, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry fruit leading to a plush, opulent wine with great density, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish.
El Nido El Nido
Glass-staining purple. Explosive, alluring scents of blueberry, boysenberry, pipe tobacco, licorice, and vanilla bean. Lush and broad but juicy and firmly built, with suave candied dark fruit flavors accented by sexy floral and Asian spice qualities. Finishes broad, juicy and impressively long, with echoing boysenberry and spice notes.
