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 herbal, in perfect unison with the explosion of oily fruit that floods the palate. Long, voluptuous and full of muscle. Exquisite future in the bottle.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I tasted two vintages of most wines from Abadía Retuerta, including the 2014 Pago Valdebellón, their single vineyard pure Cabernet Sauvignon. 2014 was warmer than 2013 and the grapes were picked earlier, on October 2nd, but the vinification and élevage were similar, 12 days in stainless steel and 18 months in new French barriques. This year seems to have worked quite well for the variety, and there are some minty notes here, but not lacking ripeness. The palate shows incredible energy and power, with very good freshness. It combines concentration with elegance and comes through as harmonious. This is a wine that should develop nicely in bottle. There were 24 barrels that filled 5,717 bottles, 200 magnums and 50 double magnums in May 2016.

Wine Spectator
Dense and rich, this red delivers ripe currant and plum flavors, backed by licorice, espresso and dark chocolate notes, while an herbal accent adds a savory element. The muscular tannins are well-integrated and balsamic acidity keeps this balanced. Drink now through 2028.

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.
