Winemaker's Notes

Number 67 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

This beautiful 100% Tempranillo is from vineyards in Ribera del Duero that are over 50 years old. Aged for 10 months in oak barrels, it is bottled with minimal intervention.

The result - an incredible Tempranillo, darkly colored and richly perfumed with cedar, spice box, blueberry, plum and cherry notes. Fresh and spicy, with juicy dark fruit flavors, mineral and a touch of vanilla on the finish. Could be cellared for 10+ years, but really rich and tasty right now.

"The 2005 Neo Sentido is similarly styled but more layered and richer than the 2004. It should have a slighter longer lifeline than its older sibling."
-Wine Advocate

Wine Advocate note on 2004 vintage: "The 2004 Neo Sentido is 100% Tempranillo aged for 6 months in a mix of new and used French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an attractive perfume of cedar, vanilla, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry jam. Firmly structured, with good depth and concentration, this tasty wine can be cellared for several years but is rich enough to drink now through 2015."
-Wine Advocate 90 Points

"Inky violet. Deeply scented nose displays powerful cassis and blueberry, along with subtle floral qualities. Graceful, finely etched dark berry flavors deliver impressive purity and length. Finishes sweet and virtually tannin-free. This is drinking extremely well already."
-International Wine Cellar

This wine was a pleasant surprise. Served with homemade Osso Bucco, and paired perfectly.
