Winemaker's Notes

Nabuko is of equal parts Monastrell and Syrah. The hearty Monastrell is the second most planted grape in Spain.

Monastrell is perfectly suited to Yecla, in Murcia, where it reaches its apex. And it happens to be where Nabuko is produced. The other half of this equation is the noble Syrah, the grape with the longest charted history of all the noble varieties. It adds body and structure. Both grapes are very well adapted to the Mediterranean and thrive in this sunny, high altitude, arid climate. Yecla's altitude, at nearly 2, 400 ft, coupled with temperate Mediterranean Sea breezes, brings cooler night temperatures, giving this wine great freshness.

Nabuko's blend delivers a one two punch with the deep flavors and complex aromatics. In the nose, your initial impression is….northern rhone and then pleasant ripe fruit aromas suddenly appear. Its nice and round in the mouth, making for a very flavorful wine. Only 2,000 cases made for the world.

Try Nabuko with steak frites or as they call it where I'm from steak and potatoes.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Nabuko is a blend of 50% Monastell and 50% Syrah aged for three months in French oak. Purple-colored, the aromatics feature fragrant blueberries and blackberry. This is followed by a chewy, layered wine with spicy blue and black fruits and mineral notes making an appearance. Long and rich, this tasty, balanced effort can be enjoyed over the next 4-5 years."
