Winemaker's Notes:

Predicador 2008 is a deep cherry-red color. On the nose red fruits and black fruits predominate, with spicy notes and soft oak, showing great complexity. The palate is pleasant and full-bodied, refreshing and full of fruit. Its balancing acidity and ripe tannins bring power and a long finish.

Blend: 96% Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha, 1% Viura

My Notes:

About Benjamin Romeo:

Benjamin Romeo was the winemaker at the iconic Rioja winery Artadi. After 15 years there, he started Contador, his own personal project, also in the Rioja Alavesa. There he very quickly received international recognition when his 2004 vintage Contador Cuvee was awarded 100 points from The Wine Advocate.
