Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker Alejandro Fernandez is a legend, and this elegant and fruity red from Spain will show you why. Intensely expressive in its youth, with dark fruits, leather, and spice, it is a joy to drink. In style, this will remind longtime Pesquera fans of the early export vintages, notably the 1983.

"Primary aromas of crushed blackberry, cranberry and mint. Concentrated, dense and smooth but still tightly wrapped, with sappy red fruit flavors, solid backbone and lovely restrained sweetness. Very fresh wine, with dusty tannins and very good length."
-International Wine Cellar

Currently under vine are 500 acres, almost exclusively Tempranillo, in a range of soil types including a locally-rare gravel deposit. Following development of new wine estates in the 1990's current vintages are of unprecedented quality. The 'Master of the Tempranillo', now at the peak of his career.
