The style and quality of Pruno is quite different from Finca Villacreces because from the beginning the concept was clear. All the grapes for Pruno are coming from the State of Villacreces, but the age of the vineyards are between 5 and 25 years old. The blend is different from Villacreces and the time in oak is 12 months compared to the 14 of Villacreces. Although we are using the same coopers (Darnajou & Taransaud), the barrels for Villacreces are new or one year old, but Pruno uses 2nd year barrels.
"The 2008 Pruno, from the estate's younger vines, is a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a sexy bouquet of Asian spices, incense, cedar, mineral, and assorted black fruits. Super-rich, bordering on opulent, it has layers of succulent, spicy fruit, enough structure to support 2-3 years of cellaring, and exceptional length. This sensational value over-delivers in a very big way.91+
