Winemaker's Notes

Elegant and powerful all through, with a deep clean red cherry color. Complex and deep aromas, with intense fresh and ripe fruit, mingling with mineral and spicy tones. The fruit remains in the mouth, on the palate it is full, fresh, powerful and hearty. For drinking now or can be laid down and enjoyed in a few years time.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Conde San Cristobal is 80% Tinta Fino (Tempranillo) with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Purple in color, it reveals an alluring perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, incense, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, layered, and full-flavored, this solid offering has enough structure to evolve for 3-4 years. Drink it from 2013 to 2021. It is an excellent value. "
90 Points

"Inky purple. Suave, perfumed bouquet of blackberry, cassis, potpourri and minerals. Supple, sweet red and dark berry flavors are framed by silky tannins and brightened by a note of white pepper. This open-knit, alluringly sweet wine is ready to drink. "
