Winemaker Notes

This exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a limestone-rich terroir blessed with its own microclimate. After a complete maceration, it spent sixteen months developing its potential in new oak barrels. Dark color, which gives off a delicate air of sweet spices, exotic fruit, mineral flavors, which together show us its generous, yet at the same time complex, body. On the palate, well assembled and persistent, promising a great ageing potential.

Wine Enthusiast
Among a small population of varietal Spanish Cabernets, Pago Valdebellón is exemplary. Bold plum and cassis aromas come with a needling of green notes and spice. In the mouth, this is tight and tannic, but not angry. Flavors of herbal raspberry come with a minty aftertaste, while the finish is lively and herbal, with a touch of heat.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pago Valdebellon is a pure Cabernet Sauvignon, although perversely it reminds me of a Cabernet Franc with its savoriness and hints of green pepper on the nose. The palate is full-bodied with very firm, sturdy tannins: black fruit intermarried with mocha and leather that lead to a balanced, rather foursquare finish with a seam of dark chocolate.

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.

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.
