39.90€ (Inc. VAT bot. 75 cl.) / Spain
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Fincas is a 50/50 blend of Caíño and Sousón and is also a blend of two fermentations, one with 20% full clusters in stainless steel and the other with 100% full clusters, foot trodden and in open top 600-liter barrels, both with indigenous yeasts. The wines were blended and matured in 225- and 300-liter oak barrels for 15 months. There is quite a bit of oak here, with a core of ripe but not overripe fruit, showing a mixture of spices, smoke, earth and wild berries. The palate reveals a powerful and generously oaked wine with plenty of fine-grained, slightly dusty tannins. It makes me think of the wines from the 1990s. For those who like more oaky reds. 3,600 bottles were filled in August 2017.
