Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Fincas is a 50/50 blend of Caíño and Sousón from steep slate vineyards. As with other reds from this winery, the full clusters were foot trodden in open 600 liter oak barrels with indigenous yeast and transferred to barrique for malolactic and 16 months aging after fermentation. The wine rested in tank until it was finally bottled in August 2014. The slow, long aging process seems to have given the wine very good harmony and complexity and has balsamic notes intermixed with black pepper and wild fruit, quite shy, not too expressive, more subtle that its siblings. The palate is medium-bodied, and you feel more gritty, rustic tannins but great acidity. It seems to have the stuffing and components to develop well in bottle, but you should wait a bit before pulling the cork. 2,400 bottles were produced.
