Aromas of cherry, licorice & tar. Deep and weighty with serious brooding tannins framing dense cherry and blackberry fruit. Finishes with notes of chocolate and cherry liqueur.
90 Points-Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate “A top-notch offering from this nearly forgotten, vast viticultural region. Its inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by smoky, creme de cassis-like aromas presented in a full-bodied, fleshy, modern, international style.”
93 Points-The Wine Enthusiast “Fans of Miguel Angel de Gregorio’s Finca Allende wines from Rioja will want to snap up this excellent, lush-styled blend. This wine almost proves that talent is as important as terroir, because no other La Mancha wine features this grape blend, these rich and pure medicinal flavors, and a smooth-handed sense of balance that calls for drinking now through 2013.”
