Winery notes (2005 Vintage)
"Tempranillo grapes were hand picked from 30 year-old vines in stony vineyards – Valdepeñas means “valley of rocks” – in late August/early September. The soils are clayey lime and there is a chalky layer which retains water to refresh the vines. Altitude helps moderate summer heat, as the climate in Valdepeñas is classic continental, with cold winters and long hot, dry summers.

2005 has been rated “Very Good” by the Valdepeñas DO. Generally, the climate and therefore grape harvest, is remarkably consistent in this part of Spain.

An intense dark red shading to brick red at the rim. A range of different characteristics can be identified on the nose – black cherry fruit, spicy notes of leather and musk, tobacco and vanilla oak. Medium to full bodied with some finesse, concentrated red fruit compote flavours and smooth, mellow tannins on the finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2016 (2005 Vintage)
"A beautifully maturing tempranillo, the complex bouquet shows dark fruit, nutmeg, game and spice characters, followed by a velvety palate that offers excellent fruit weight and silky texture, wonderfully framed by fine, chalky tannins. Multi-layered and seductive, this is a beautifully composed red exhibiting complexity that can only come from lengthy maturation. At its best: now to 2019."
