Winemaker Notes

Dark color. Complex and powerful on the nose, highlights of balsamic notes, wild aromatic herbs and spices (black pepper and clove). It opens up with aromas of toffee and After Eight mints. Fruity in the mouth, blackcurrant and orange marmalade preserve. The finish is slightly herby, in perfect unison with the explosion of oily fruit that floods the palate. Long, voluptuous and full of muscle. Exquisite future in the bottle.

It will develop its potential over the next 5 years and then continue its refinement in the bottle, reaching its high towards 2019.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Pago Valdebellon, pure Cabernet Sauvignon, has the cassis and herbal aromas so typical from the variety, but in 2011 it ripened perfectly and also reveals showy, dark aromas of graphite, black pepper and smoke. It does have some aromas of dark chocolate and smoke, but the oak is perfectly integrated and makes those aromas of paprika come out and provide freshness. The palate is medium to full-bodied with classical dusty, grainy tannins, good acidity, and very good balance, a big, powerful and ripe Cabernet which really benefitted from the 2011 growing season. This has to be one of the top Cabernet Sauvignons produced in Spain. Drink 2015-2020.

Bright purple. Heady cassis, cherry-vanilla, floral pastille, licorice and incense scents show excellent clarity and suggestions of woodsmoke and pipe tobacco. Densely packed, fresh redcurrant and cherry liqueur flavors are complicated by candied rose, minerals and black pepper, with bright acidity adding lift. Turns more tangy and energetic with air, picking up a Moroccan spice note that lingers impressively on the smooth, subtly tannic, strikingly persistent finish.

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.
