Product Description

This is Felix Callejo's newly re-branded 'Reserva'. Our note coming soon. Winery Note: The grapes come from various plots, selected for the ideal ripening to make this wine. The alcoholic fermentation, with native yeast, was begun at low temperatures, rising to 30°C at the end. The wine continued to macerate with the skins for a further two weeks. The wine was then run off into new and second-fill French oak barrels for the malo-lactic fermentation. The ageing was carried out in the same barrels for 18 months with rackings to clear the wine of its lees.

"Opaque purple. Spice-accented blackberry and cherry preserve aromas are complicated by notes of violet, woodsmoke, cocoa powder and licorice. Seamless and velvety on the palate, with sappy dark fruit flavors dominating. Vanillin oak and spicecake nuances build with air and carry through a very long, sweet, virtually tannin-free finish. This is delicious now but has the depth to reward patience."
92 Points, Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sep/Oct 11
