Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose, powerful aromas of red berries, specifically raspberries and cherries, and plum. Floral hints, mixed with tobacco are evident as well. It is very well-structured on the palate with impeccable balance. A rich, elegant, long finish expresses excellent acidity. Toasted notes of exotic spices linger on the tongue.

About Dominio de Tares:

Dominio de Tares was formed in 2000 by an enthusiastic group of local investors, leading a quality resurgence following years of neglect in the area. Given Bierzo’s ideal, fresh/mineral terroir and the old Mencía vines, quality at the highest level was an immediate possibility. Amancio Fernández, Bierzo native and one of Spain’s brightest young enologists, brought intimate knowledge of local viticulture to bear, working from the start with the area’s most serious growers in order to obtain the very best fruit.
