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
"The entry-level wine, the 2008 Predicador, is made up of 96% Tempranillo with the balance Garnacha and Viura aged for 16 months in second use French oak. Fragrant notes of smoke, spice box, incense, tobacco, and assorted red and black fruits inform the nose of this relatively forward, savory, well-proportioned, lengthy effort. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will provide optimum drinking from 2013 to 2020."
