Winemaker's Notes

"The 2005 Ercavio Roble is a remarkable value. Produced from 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo), this is a custom cuvee selected by importer Eric Solomon, and was aged for 5 months in French and American oak. Purple colored, with fragrant spice box, tobacco, blueberry, and blackberry aromas, this full-bodied effort has gobs of ripe fruit, a firm structure, and a 40-second finish, not bad value for a sawbuck. Although this well-made wine will surely evolve for 2-3 years, who will have the patience? This is one to purchase by the case."

I just opened this bottle today and felt suspicious of the odor. When the first sip didn't go so well, I tried decanting for nearly an hour. It didn't improve a bit. I couldn't drink it, as the wine had an acrid, rotten smell and only tasted of alcohol with a bit of licorice.

Having renovated an old family winery which dates to 1851, the three sought to preserve as much as they could from the original property, including the old tinajas (clay amphors) which are still used today for the malolactic fermentation. La Mancha is one of...
