Dominio del Bendito El Primer Paso 2018
11.63₣ (Exc. VAT bot. 75 cl.)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The serious and balanced 2018 El Primer Paso showcases the house style of powerful and intense wines produced with fully mature Tinta de Toro grapes, full of flavor and character. This matured in oak barrels for some six months, and the oak is perfectly integrated. It has varietal aromas and flavors and a chalky texture, with more freshness than the 2017 I tasted next to it, reflecting a slightly cooler year. 62,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2019.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 6 months in French and American oak barrels.
