Complex aromas of dark fruit (black cherry and blackberry) mixed with hints of cedar, vanilla and coffee on the nose. On the palate, the wine is velvety, full bodied and intense. The savory flavors of dark fruit, licorice and spices are well blended with an elegant toasting. Long finish with soft tannins.
"There are 10,000 cases of the 2007 Ercavio Roble, made up of 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo) and aged for five months in French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple in color, it delivers an expressive nose of cedar, earth notes, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur. Thick, dense, and opulent on the palate, it has gobs of savory black fruit, licorice and spice notes, enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years, and a lengthy finish. It totally over-delivers for its humble price. This is one to buy by the case."
The Wine Advocate
I was really surprised by this wine. Complex dark fruit and super long finnish.
This is complex and full of flavor. An excellent value and pairs especially well with meat and highly spiced dishes. I never tire of it.
A little gentle for my liking, but good nose, and quite tasty. Dry finish. Definitely would buy again. And the label is pretty cool.
