Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The carbonic maceration red 2018 Jarrarte Maceración Carbónica was produced by fermenting full clusters of Tempranillo in an open concrete lagar, and only the free run wine was bottled. This wine is more elegant and easier to drink, aromatic but without excess, and it has subtle notes of violets and blueberries, clean and focused. It's from a year of rain and higher yields, and the wines might have less dry extract but also, in the case of this young red, better balance. It feels very harmonious, tasty and juicy, with fine tannins. It's been a while since I've had a carbonic maceration red this good! 38,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2019.
