Winemaker's Notes

A limpid, brilliant wine at the sight with good depth featuring an intense and complex nose where prevails the vanilla, game, tobacco and liquorice. It displays a round and fleshy mouth with a friendly tannin and an elegant and harmonious finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Crianza was aged for 12 months in American oak. Purple-colored, it has a fragrant nose of cedar, pencil lead, tobacco, spice box, and blackberry. This leads to a dense, medium to full-bodied wine with significant structure. With more than enough fruit for balance, this packed wine will evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2025. Bodegas Matarromera is an 80-hectare estate located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero D.O. These two wines are 100% Tinta del Pais, the local name for Tempranillo"
