Winemaker's Notes

This wine is made from 100% Tempranillo, from organically farmed vineyards. Los cantos refers to rounded river stones which appear in all of the vineyards used as fruit sources for this wine. Five different parcels contributed grapes to the blend with an average age of the vines being 25 years. Parcels were chosen based on aromatic and structural traits. This is the first vintage for this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Los Cantos de Torremilanos is 100% Tempranillo aged for 13 months in one-third new French oak. Purple-colored, its nose reveals wood smoke, lavender, pencil lead, black cherry, and blackberry. Firm and structured on the palate with an elegant personality, this lengthy effort will evolve for another 2-3 years and drink well through 2021.
Rating: 90+ "
