Winemaker's Notes

A perfect example of why Spanish wines are growing in popularity. This blend of 75% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot is utterly unique and delicious! Dark, rich, and fruity with velvety tannins and a long finish, an amazing value.

"The 1999 Abadia Retuerta reveals an opaque purple color as well as a classy, complex bouquet of flowers, black currants, raspberries, cherries, and vanilla. Full-bodied and elegant, yet concentrated as well as powerful, with impressive overall harmony, this nicely-textured, rich 1999 can be drunk now, or cellared for 10-15 years. Kudos to Abadia Retuerta's terrific winemaker, Angel Anocibar."
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
