Winemaker's Notes:

Shows a deep red claret colour with violet hue towards the rim. Powerful nose with ripe red fruit, and hint of violets and minerals. Fresh, elegant and clean, delicious with plenty of varietal flavors on the palate. Sweet tannins and refreshing but integrated acidity.
My Notes:

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.
