Community Tasting Notes 8

    September 9, 2019 - Etihad & Lufthansa - flights & lounges; 9/8/2019-9/14/2019 (Sydney, Abu Dhabi, Frankfurt, Berlin): {cork} Carignan/Grenache blend. Fearsome! Nose is youthful, with raisins, boiled plums and plenty of fumey warmth evident. But there’s a strident earthy note too. Surprisingly perhaps, the palate is open and loose, a touch rustic (see Carignan). Stewed red flavours are overt, with medium acid, medium gritty tannins, and a fairly even palate, albeit one carried a bit by alcohol. Medium/full-bodied, despite little obvious oak. Medium length warm finish. Best before a decade I think. (Etihad First Lounge Abu Dhabi)

    July 12, 2019 - Ensamblaje de Cariñena, Garnacha tinta y Syrah. Picota de buena capa. Nariz expresiva, con toques de furtilla negra del bosque en sazón, algo de bosque umbrío, toques ahumados y un fondo algo ahumado. En boca tiene buen ataque, cuerpo medio, tanino firme pero bien integrado, estructura media y buena persistencia.

    February 5, 2018 - A blend of Carignan, Syrah and Garnacha. 14% alcohol.

    Opaque black-red cherry color. Ripe, fruity and very dark-toned nose with aromas of sweet blackcurrants, some fresh and sappy green notes, a little bit of damsons and sour dark plums, a little bit of sweet oak and a herbal hint of mint and even some dill. The wine feels full-bodied, rich and quite concentrated on the palate with ripe, voluptuous flavors of wizened dark fruits, some chocolatey oak, light sour cherry bitterness, a little bit of prune, a hint of brambly blackberry and a herbal touch of mint. Overall the wine feels firm and structured with moderately high acidity and quite ample and firm tannins that lend a rather grippy touch to the wine. The finish is rich, juicy and pretty lengthy with complex flavors of ripe dark berries, sunny dark fruits, even some pruney fruit, a little bit of toasty oak spice, a hint of caramel and a touch of blackcurrant.

    I had my reservations on this wine, because so many people had said it was yet another boring super-wine in the Torres range. However, I was positively surprised by the balance and the freshness this wine shows, all thanks to its good acidity, firm tannins and flavors of freshly picked dark berries. Of course the wine is rather modern in style, with those sweet oak tones and rich notes of slightly dried fruits making the wine quite easy and approachable, but I was fearing for a lot worse. The wine is a bit too modern and oaky for my taste right now, but as the wine shows good cellaring potential, there is a promise that this will perform a lot better if left to age some more. I'd wait until the wine is at least 10 years old just to see how it develops - hopefully for better.

    December 19, 2016 - Ensamblaje de cariñena, garnacha y syrah.
    Granate oscuro, bastante cubierto y brillante. Atractivo aspecto visual incluyendo el packaging. Contraetiqueta algo pobre de información sobre variedades y elaboración.
    Un tinto con un perfil muy convencional, quizás destacan más las notas de la crianza, con alguna nota especiada, suaves tostados y bastantes ahumados. En segundo plano aparece la fruta, bastante golosa, sobre todo roja y bien definida. En boca la fruta destaca más que la "madera" que aparece en segundo plano. El ataque es bueno, el desarrollo placentero, no anda mal de acidez, el tanino está bastante bien integrado, estructura media y bastante longitud. Un tinto diseñado para gustar, con carácter mediterráneo pero la potencia esta siempre bajo control.
