Contino Reserva 2006

"Deep, complex and very high quality amalgam of oak, earth, fruit - the savoury, the meaty and the mystic. The palate is deep and smooth, meaty with subtle leather, sweet cedar and vanilla wood spices and brighter pip-squeak fruit and acid levity. Long, possibly profound." Importer's Note...

Product Description

"Deep, complex and very high quality amalgam of oak, earth, fruit - the savoury, the meaty and the mystic. The palate is deep and smooth, meaty with subtle leather, sweet cedar and vanilla wood spices and brighter pip-squeak fruit and acid levity. Long, possibly profound." Importer's Note

"The 2006 Reserva is a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo and 5% Garnacha raised in American and French oak for two years,. It has a very seductive bouquet with lush, but composed dark cherry, pomegranate and spice-tinged notes that are well-defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins and well-judged acidity, and a velvety-smooth finish of wild strawberry, cassis and citrus lemon. This is a very fine Reserva to drink until 2025, but I suspect the following vintage is better."
