The old-vine component of the El Otero parcel, running to around seven hectares, supplies the fruit for this ageworthy Tinto Fino. After a frost-induced break in 2017, it's back with interest in 2018. Aged in new French oak, but not dominated by the wood, it's a finely judged red from Julio Sáenz with notes of blackberry and tangerine, filigree tannins and a long, textured finish. 2023-33
Immensely complex with aromas of red fruit, leaves and forest floor. The palate brings some blackberry and minty flavours, fine tannin and well-integrated acidity. Lovely!
Aromas of cassis, blackberries, licorice, walnuts and chocolate. Bold and structured with full body and a deep core of fruit. Very polished and silky. Intense and ripe, yet it shows crunchy blue-fruit character and hints of blue flowers. Firm finish with notes of walnuts and cocoa. 100% tempranillo. Drink from 2023.
