In Vierlas, 10 miles upriver from Cascante and just into the region of Aragón, One hundred and thirty acres of vineyard located on a unique quaternary gravel deposit called La Lombana was acquired in its entirety through dozens of individual transactions during the late 1990s. A fruit-forward style is the objective from a blend predominated by estate Syrah, Tempranillo and Garnacha (with smaller percentages of Graciano and Petit Verdot), the wine being aged a scant three months in a mixture of new and used French oak. Spice and sweet fruit abound on the nose and palate, framed by Guelbenzu's reliable sense of fruit purity.
Great color; Dark berry and pepper flavors jump off(on) the palate; only flaw is the anti-climactic finish. One of the most complex and impressive $10 wines I've ever tasted.
The wine is very descent for the price, I did put him in my favorite list.
A little light on the finish. Good value.
