Winemaker Notes

Impressive color in the glass, intense and young. Opens up on the nose, offering very clean notes of wild herbs and ripe (almost preserve) red fruit (wild strawberry, raspberry and cherry), delicately creamy. In the mouth, the attack is very smooth,moving immediately on to unveil a very deep wine, fleshy and structured, with an impacting return to the fruit, although the highlight is perhaps its noblesse, maturity and refined tannins. Bold, persistent and full of character. A great wine, a wine ofdistinction.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pago Negrelada is pure Tempranillo. It has an introspective, broody nose with blackberry, cassis and violets, all encased in vanillary new oak that does not detract from its delineation. The palate is supple and rounded on the entry and the texture is perfectly seamless. This is supremely well-balanced and sleek, underpinned by beautifully integrated oak. There are bountiful ripe dark cherries and creme de cassis that combine on its poised, sensual finish crafted down to the finest detail.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Dense leather, cola and wild berry aromas comprise the bouquet on this massive, layered, suprememly rich Tempranillo. Core blackberry, cassis and blueberry flavors are incredibly ripe, while chocolate and prune flavors carry the finish. This is a thick, dense wine squarely made in the modern style.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This sleek red shows good density and balance, with ripe cherry, plum and cocoa flavors, deepened by smoke and mineral. The tannins are well-integrated, turning a bit dry on the finish. Decant or cellar. Tempranillo.

Abadia Retuerta, Spain
Abadia Retuerta Winery Image

The Abadía Retuerta Estate occupies over 700 hectares of terrain, and its name comes from the combination of two words that define and describe the territory: Rívula (river bank) and Torta (twisting, winding). Over 204 hectares of vineyards are spread out on hillsides ranging in altitude from a maximum 850 metres down to the southern bank of the Duero River. Most of the world's best varieties of soil are represented.

Designed by famous French enologist, Pascal Delbeck, in 1996, Abadía Retuerta winery is a surprising combination of tradition and modernity, recognized as one of the most advanced wineries in Europe. Currently, Angel Anocíbar Beloqui (PhD in Enology and Ampelography from the University of Bordeaux and International Wine Challenge 2005 Winemaker of the Year) coordinates the entire process, from the vine to the bottle.

Abadía Retuerta estate wines offer some very unique characteristics. They are full-colored wines, intense and aromatically clean, clearly structured, smooth to the palate and delicate in the development of their strength.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
