Winemaker Notes

Intense color in the glass. Fresh black fruit on the nose: blackberries that fuse together on a backdrop of shrubs, aromatic herbs, palulu and light notes of cocoa. In the mouth, it is big but smooth, with fully developed, well-rounded tannins. Velvety with a long, persistent finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The warmer growing season was noticeable in the 2014 Pago Negralada, the Tempranillo from a vineyard with relatively warm soils that provides good ripeness. The grapes were picked on September 27th, quite early, and put to ferment with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, followed by malolactic fermentation in brand new French oak barrels, where it had an upbringing of 18 months before bottling after a clarification with egg whites—quite a similar process from vineyard to vineyard and from vintage to vintage. This style of vintage worked really well for Tempranillo and the wine comes through as terribly balanced, with energy, power and elegance. While I see that Syrah has worked well in 2013, the Tempranillo needs to be ripe and years like 2013 are not as complete as 2014. 9,188 bottles, 300 magnums and 50 double magnums produced. It was bottled in May 2016.

Coffee and tarry notes frame rich plum and chocolate flavors in this bold red. Well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity give this structure. Offers a nice mix of fruity and savory elements. Drink now through 2022.

Abadia Retuerta, Spain

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.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, 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.

Most planted and respected 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.
