    April 29, 2019 - Very nice. We had with some fairly fatty lamb, and the acidity was perfect to break through that, so was an excellent pairing. Well balanced, with a nice finish, probably at peak drinking time. Notes of olive, plenty of fruit. Only downside was a significant amount of sediment, so strain on pouring.

    March 8, 2019 - Day 1: Spice, mild funk, floral and celery stalks. Not very concentrated. Short to medium finish. Not a bad wine but certainly not worth $30. Well see if day 2 offers more. 87 points
    Day 2: Very modern and simple wine. Almost an embarrassment of the $30 this cost. Ripe fruit, wood, vanilla and coffee beans. This lacks acidity. Not impressed here. 85 points
    Day 3:

    January 13, 2019 - Medium nose of ripe red and black fruit, not very complex, but well made... Very nice fresh ripe strawberries and red berries, fresh and laser sharp tannins, very nice!!

    April 26, 2018 - Wahnsinnig guter spanischer Wein: der Selección Especial von Abadia Retuerta!

    Für diese kräftige Cuvée aus Castilla wird eine Selektion der besten Trauben aller 54 Parzellen des Weingutes verwendet. Hier vereinen sich stilvoll Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon und etwas Merlot. Heraus kommt ein Wein mit vielfältigem Bukett und tiefgründiger Kraft.

    In der Nase identifizieren wir klare Fruchtaromen gepaart mit feinen Holznoten. Am Gaumen spüren wir seine fleischige und samtige Dichte, die durch den Ausbau in französischer Eiche zutage tritt.

    Wir sind erstaunt über die finessenreiche Komplexität und das beachtliche Alterungspotenzial dieser Cuvée, die aus der langen Reife in Barriques resultiert.
